GLYCON MAKES WINNING DEBUT AT PARISLONGCHAMP
Glycon, the Haras de Saint Pair’s three year old Le Havre colt out of Glorious Sight made a brilliant winning debut over 1800 metres at ParisLongchamp on October 17th. Making his first start for trainer Jean Claude Rouget and jockey Cristian Demuro Glycon was held up at the rear of the field, well behind the leaders, during the early part of the race. Once in the straight Demuro brought him to the outside and then Glycon cruised passed his nine rivals without ever coming off the bridle of making any apparent effort. Once the pair were well clear Demuro eased him down to win unchallenged by 5 lengths.
It has been a long wait but the three year old gelding looks to have a future now. He becomes the third winner from the first three living foals of his dam Glorious Sight. Glycon has an unraced two year old half brother by Siyoini called Glaer who is in training with John Gosden and her yearling filly by Dubawi was sold at the Tattersalls October 1 sale to American agent Mike Ryan for 450.000 guineas and will be trained by Chad Brown. Glorious Sight was among the best fillies of her generation finishing placed in both the Poule d’Essai des Pouiches and the Prix de Diane.
