Sublimis continues productive season with G2 Grand Prix de Deauville third
Sublimis placed at Group level for a fourth consecutive time as the Andre Fabre-trained five-year-old stayed on well to take a close third in the G2 Grand Prix de Deauville on Sunday, 29 August.
The son of Shamardal was held up at the rear of the field for much of the extended 12-furlong race and still had all four rivals in front of him as he was angled out to deliver his challenge with two furlongs to race.
Sublimis moved up to third inside the final half-furlong and galloped out strongly under Mickael Barzalona, finishing just under three-quarters of a length behind the victorious Glycon.
Lisa-Jane Graffard of Godolphin said: “It was another very solid effort from Sublimis, who has maintained his form well throughout this year.”
