Yann Barberot wins its first Group 1 in style

25 September 2016

The trip to Italy was audacious, the bet was finally more than successful! After a superb race, Waikika crossed the final line first in the G1 Premio Vittorio di Capua and offered to trainer Yann Barberot its first success at the highest level. Unfortunate third in the G3 Prix de Quincey on her last time out, the filly was back at San Siro racetrack where she previously finished second at Listed level in 2014. “This is fantastic! A Group 1 is an achievement! (…) And there is a story : Waikika is owned by Philippe Bellaiche who offered me my first runner, my first success and now my first Group 1”, explained the Deauville-based handler.

In parallel of becoming the first Group 1-winner for Yann Barberot, Waikika is also the first horse trained at Deauville to win a Group 1 since Silver Frost in 2009. A beautiful exploit for the trainer of the new syndicate Ecurie Triptych !
