Lafontaine, our French-bred juvenile and named after France’s first ballerina, is well into training with Sylvester Kirk at Lambourn and already showing great promise. Lafontaine is by 5 times Group 1 winner Canford Cliffs out of a speedy mare who won over 7 furlongs for John Gosden. Sylvester says: “She’s a real smasher. What I really like about her is that she does everything effortlessly. She’s entered for the £150,000 Tattersalls October Stakes which should suit her nicely, but we’ll probably start her off at a local course like Salisbury or Newbury”.
Lafontaine is an exceptionally attractive filly who’s clearly becoming a bit of a yard favourite!
