There was cause for double celebration for Newmarket-based trainer James Fanshawe and the Pegasus Yard after a sensational weekend in Longchamp, France.
The highlight of the event saw six-year-old High Jinx, ridden by Ryan Moore, scoop another Group One win for the successful yard as they clinched glory in the Prix du Cadran race, while four-year-old 2 Ribbons was narrowly pipped to victory in the Prix De L’Opera Longines.
“It was a great weekend and to have the two of them do so well is a great reflection on the yard,” said Fanshawe.
“High Jinx has been knocking on the door for a while and he really deserved it.
“Obviously at any yard having a Group One winner is something you strive to do.
“It is the highest you can achieve and that is very satisfying.”
Bury Road-based trainer John Gosden’s Tagrooda sealed a promising third place finish in the Group One Qatar Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe with Roger Varian-trained Kingston Hill finishing in fourth place.
