Gregarina lands De Treville a first Listed win

Runner-up in the course-and-distance Listed Prix Volterra June 12 and in the 7 1/2-furlong Listed Prix la Sorellina at Tarbes July25, Gregarina earned the reward for that consistency with this black-type breakthrough. Keen early under restraint against the rail in mid-division, the hooded bay was angled out to pursue Nola and once she had that rival's measure a furlong from home outstayed her in the run to the line. "She deserved that, she's not an easy filly as she can be keen," trainer Fabrice Chappet said. "She will need a little bit of time between races and this mile is probably as far as she goes." Gregarina becomes the first black-type winner for her sire, who is a son of the renowned Dar Re Mi (GB) (Singspiel {Ire}). The dam, kin to the GII San Clemente H. and GII Honeymoon Breeders' Cup H. winner Attima (GB) (Zafonic) and the G3 Prix des Chenes runner-up San Domenico (GB) (Zamindar), boasts as her last known foal the stable's TDN Rising Star 2-year-old colt Gain It (GB) who had earlier been fourth in the card's G3 Prix la Rochette as he had been in last month's G3 Prix Six Perfections. The family also features the G3 Prix de Cabourg-placed Kithira(GB) (Danehill), who is in turn the dam of two listed scorers including Tombelaine (First Defence), who captured the Listed Tetrarch S. and was runner-up in the G3 Golden Fleece S.
