First winner for Sumbe's Recorder

Recorder, who stands under the Sumbe banner at Haras de Montfort et Préaux for €4,000, had his first winner yesterday as Pia and Joakim Brandt's Hot Queen ran out a three-length winner of the 1350m maiden at Lyon Parilly. The colt broke well and dictated proceedings from the front, setting a good gallop and stringing out the field. He had his rivals under pressure from the top of the straight and stayed on strongly for a decisive victory. Hot Queen was bred by Finn Blichfeldt out of the 2008 Scandinavian Champion Older Mare Hot Fudge (Lomitas), who won 12 races and has previously produced four other winners, including Reliable Son (Reliable Man), who just missed out on black type when fourth in the Listed Grand Prix de Nantes. Recorder (Galileo) won twice, including a victory in the Gr.3 Acomb Stakes at York before being injured. Bred by The Queen, he is a full-brother to the Gr.2 Belmont Cup winner Call To Mind, and a half-brother to the Gr.3 Stockholms Stora Pris winner Learn By Heart (Frankel). Their dam is the Gr.2 Cherry Hinton Stakes and Gr.3 Albany Stakes winner Memory (Danehill Dancer), a half-sister to the Gr.3 Tyros Stakes winner Remember Alexander (Teofilo).
