    Blue Rose Cen solidifies her position as a standout player with a stunning goal in the match against Diane’s team

    The Magnificent Blue Rose Cen Claims Prix de Diane Longines Title in Style

    Blue Rose Cen, trained by Christopher Head, proved her mettle once again as she clinched the prestigious Prix de Diane Longines title at Chantilly. This was her second Classic win this year after triumphing in the Poule d’Essai des Pouliches last month.

    The daughter of Churchill put up a dominant performance on her first attempt at 10 furlongs. With Aurelien Lemaitre on board, she tracked the pace set by stablemate Wise Girl and French Guineas runner-up Lindy along with previously unbeaten Pensee Du Jour before pulling away from them effortlessly in the final stretch.

    Aidan O’Brien’s Never Ending Story finished second while Francis-Henri Graffard’s Tasmania settled for third place. However, it was all about Blue Rose Cen who is now being quoted at 12-1 to tackle an extra two furlongs in the upcoming Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in October.

    First Filly Since 2016

    This exceptional filly has become the first since Jean-Claude Rouget’s La Cressonniere back in 2016 to achieve French Guineas/Oaks double. She also joins elite company comprising of Zarkava, Divine Proportions and Allez France as winners of all three races – Prix Marcel Boussac, Poule d’Essai des Pouliches and Prix de Diane.

    On future plans for Blue Rose Cen, trainer Christopher Head said that they will have a meeting with Yeguada Centurion (owners) to discuss them further based on how she gets out of this race. He added that although they had planned only until the Prix de Diane, they will now plan for the rest of the season and consider her participation in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

    Perfect Overall

    Christopher Head is all praise for Blue Rose Cen. He said that he sees no imperfection regarding this filly as she is “perfect overall”. She has a strong mind and physique which makes her run with a certain passion. The trainer believes that it has been brilliant to be involved with such an exceptional talent and wishes everyone could have such luck.

    The younger Head won his first Group One last October when Blue Rose Cen took the Boussac but has now gone on to win two Classics in his second season in training ranks.
