Royal victory for Nicolas Clement in Saraca

Extract of September 20's EBN article :

The Nicolas Clement-trained two-year-old Royal Spring (Tamayuz) continued his good run of form and also scored his third success in a row and first black-type victory in the Listed Prix Saraca on the same card.
Running in the colours of the Vendome Racing Club, the chesnut asserted close home to land the spoils by a head in a blanket finish from the Fabrice Chappet-trained La Berma
(Lawman). The favourite Kerman (Invincible Spirit) was a short neck away in third for trainer Jean-Claude Rouget. Royal Spring was third on debut at Chantilly in June, to the subsequent Listed Prix Fancois Boutin winner and Gr.2 Prix la Rochette runner-up Nucifera (More Than Ready), then broke his maiden on his second start at Dieppe, before winning a conditions event at Deauville last month.
Bred by Michael and Donard Niall, he is the first foal out of the placed Pivotal mare Main Spring, who is a halfsister to the Gr.1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Kingdom Of Fife (Kingmambo) and the Gr.3 Autumn Stakes-placed Four Winds (Red Ransom). This is also the family of the Gr.1 Coronation Cup and Gr.1 Prix Royal-Oak winner and sire Ask and the multiple Gr.2 winner and sire Blueprint.
