YOUMNA breaks his maiden with style at Maisons-Laffitte

Owned by His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani, YOUMNA broke his maiden when winning the Prix Ad Altiora at Maisons-Laffitte, France on Monday 16 September 2019. Initially held up in seventh place, the Henri Alex Pantall-trained bay colt, came to join the leaders turning into the straight. Ridden by Pierre Charles Boudot, the son of FRENCH FIFTEEN showed a sharp acceleration to win the 2400-metre race for three-year-old maidens two and a half lengths in front of his nearest rival never challenged, demonstrating that he was never challenged. The Stall Ullmann-owned and Jean-Pierre Carvalho-trained GUARDIAN FAY was the runner up under Maxime Guyon. The Mme Armand Humeau-owned and F Monnier-trained SERMANDAKFI completed the frame in third, a further short head behind, under FABRICE VERON.
