Broderie finishes third in German G3
Four-year-old filly Broderie gained some valuable G3 Black Type when third in the Grosser Preis der Landeshauptstadt Dresden over seven furlongs at Dresden, Germany, on Sunday, 16 June.
The daughter of Pivotal, dropping to seven furlongs after scoring decisively in a mile Listed race for trainer Henri-Alex Pantall at Hanover on Wednesday, 1 May, raced in third of the eight runners behind Brian Ryan and Zargun early on.
She was relegated to fourth by Waldpfad turning for home, but stayed on well under Soufiane Saadi to briefly challenge for the lead down the centre of the course entering the final furlong.
Broderie could not match Brian Ryan and Waldpfad in the closing stages, but kept on to go down by two lengths in total.
Brian Ryan rallied strongly near the line to beat Waldpfad by a neck in 1m 24.70s on good ground, with a further length and three-quarters back to the Godolphin runner.
Lisa-Jane Graffard of Godolphin said: “We are delighted to get a Group placing with Broderie.
“There is no reason why she shouldn’t run again at this level, possibly back over a mile next time.”
