Rail Link (horse)
Prix du Lys (2006)|
Grand Prix de Paris (2006)
Prix Niel (2006)
Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (2006)
Unraced at two, he made an inauspicious start to his three-year-old career, unseating his rider on his debut at Saint-Cloud, and then finishing second in its next race at Chantilly Racecourse. From then on he was undefeated in five races, winning the Prix Gouvernant, Prix du Lys, Grand Prix de Paris and Prix Niel.
During the Winter of 2006-7, he suffered a tendon problem and was taken out of training. He was expected to return in the Summer of 2007, but the injury was too serious and he was retired from racing. He was sent to stud at Juddmonte Farms.
