|Name:||Sao Maxence (FR)|
|Pedigree:||Saint Des Saints (FR) - Primadona (FR)|
|Owner:||Mr & Mrs J Dodd|
Sao Maxence is by Saint Des Saints, a horse we saw in training when we worked out in France, he is from the excellent Cadoudal line. Saint Des Saints was a decent racehorse (Group 2 & 3 Auteuil winner) himself, before going on to be a very good Sire of Cheltenham winners, with Storm of Saintly breaking the million pound prize money mark.
The Dam Primadona was a 5 time winner herself (Hurdle and Chase), she has produced 3 winners so far (Flat, Hurdle and Chase), bred in France by George and Lune Vergette.
Sao Maxence has returned looking particularly well and has been behaving a great deal better in his preliminary work than before and we hope we may have turned a corner with him. I would plan to run him in a Bumper before Christmas – he will need easier ground with the typical high knee action of those by Saint Des Saints.
