Colt, 3 yrs
Dam: Sparkling Smile
Trainer: Jerome Reynier
Sourirete has been slow to mature as one would anticipate with such a late foaling date, but has grown a lot and clearly his development benefitted from his spell at grass in the Spring. Given that he has been treated with such consideration hitherto, we expect him to be able to make a debut from February onwards. He is based near Marseille and will have plenty of options on the turf as there are widespread opportunities in Southern France from February onwards. We will design a more detailed plan when we have a handle on his likely aptitudes after fast work. His growth has widened the scope for future campaigning and disposal.
The dam's first three runners have been successively better - rated 83. 95 and this year's model the dual listed placed Sun Power has reached 102 having been campaigned more strongly at two than the pedigree might have suggested.
