Into Faith and Luigi Vampa two of our two year old’s were entered into the Haras Bouquetot Stakes at Longchamp on the Arc weekend. Luigi Vampa was ridden by Christophe Soumillon while Into Faith was ridden by Pierre Charles Boudot who would go on to ride the Arc winner.
Straight out of the gates the two colts were at the opposite end of the field Luigi Vampa at the front and Into Faith settling in at the back. Coming around the bend Into Faith had crept up and gained a few places hugging onto the rail where Luigi Vampa and Soumillon were battling for second staying just off the rail. The field seemed to all drift into the center of the track coming off the bend but Into Faith and Pierre Charles Boudot stayed on the rail and it was a clear pathway to go from last to first and once he got to the front he wasn’t going to be past and won impressively at 16/1. Luigi Vampa on the other hand got hampered going into the straight but soumillon bravely fought back to get up for third place. The first and third place is a great boost for the yard to have two exciting young colts in our ranks.
