|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 won the Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race at Ayr this season. Following this, he was placed second to Precious Cargo for Lucinda Russell.
