Haras de Gouffern homebred distinguishes herself in two Group PA races



In the summer months, Gouffern homebred ARTEMIS showed very competitive in Group PA races for 4yos and notably won her first Group PA at La Teste.
On July 5th at Chantilly, H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani-owned mare ran a good 2nd in the Qatar Derby des Pur-Sang Arabes de 4 ans only beaten 1 ¼ length by well-regarded colt HATTAL. On that day, she defeated Champion 3yo colt AMYR DU SOLEIL.

A three-time placed at Group PA level since the beginning of her career, Artemis eventually recorded a well-deserved Group PA victory on the occasion of the Prix Nevadour (Gr.3 PA) at La Teste on August 14th. In the home straight, Elisabeth Bernard’s charge did not have a clear passage and had to change her line several times under with Olivier Peslier in the saddle. Eventually finding an opening with just 200m left to run, she displayed an exceptional turn of foot to prevail by 1 ½ length, defeating Champion 3yo filly LADY PRINCESS.

Artemis was born and bred at Haras de Gouffern on behalf of Sheikh Haif Al Ghatani and HASEG (Jean-Pierre de Gasté). She started her career under her breeders’ colours before changing hand by the end of the summer 2019. The handsome bay filly is by AZADI out of OCYRRHOE, who landed the French Arabian Breeders’ Challenge – Pouliches de 4ans (Gr.1 PA). Her 2nd dam Dalina des Fabries, who ran 2nd in the Abu Dhabi International Stakes (Gr.1 PA), is also the granddam of FAZZA AL KHALEDIAH, 2018 Qatar Arabian World Cup (Gr.1 PA) hero and 2nd in the 2018 Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Jewel Crown (Gr.1 PA) and in the 2019 Dubai Kahayla Classic (Gr.1 PA). Dalina des Fabries is the own sister to Falina des Fabries, winner of the Abu Dhabi International Stakes (Gr.1 PA).
