VIA FIRENZE MAKES WINNING DEBUT AT CHANTILLY
Via Firenze, a three year old Dansili filly owned by the Ecurie des Charmes and the Haras d’Etreham and trained by Pia Brandt, made a winning debut in the Prix du Soisonnais over 1600 metres at Chantilly on March 22.
Via Firenze is a half sister to Via Pisa, a Listed winner for the Haras de Saint Pair in 2015 who also finished third in the Group 1 Premio Lydia Tesio, and to Via Lazio, an unraced Lawman filly retained by the Haras de Saint Pair. Via Firenze was sold to Ghislain Bozo for 260.000 euros at the 2014 Baden Baden September sale.
In 2014 the Haras de Saint Pair sold two yearling fillies, both of whom are currently unbeaten after making winning debuts. Via Firenze made her winning debut on March 22 and Golden Pearl, a 270.000 euro Goffs Orby yearling, made a winning debut for trainer Mick Halford at Fairyhouse in September 2015.
