ANNIKE BYE HANSEN
Powerful looking son of Wentworth
15 Dec 22: Champagnegaloppen has secured a really interesting young colt by Wentworth - bought at the Scandinavian Open Yearling Sales in Denmark. His pedigree is strong, albeit it not glittering - and his sire is not all that well known, but take a close look at this colt. His appearance is that of a powerful, well balanced and thoroughly likeable individual. Plenty of those fail to make good runner though having a good conformation certainly helps, and I'd be surprised if this guy fails to make his presence felt at the races.
His sire won the Betfred Mile Handicap at Goodwood as a three-year-old, when trained by Richard Hannon. He later joined Bettina Andersen in Denmark, where he captured Klampenborg's prestigious Pokalløb (LR) over 1800 metres.
Run For Justice's dam, the High Chaparral daughter Rivers Run, won one of her five races when trained by Ralph Beckett in England, scoring in a 12-furlong maiden at Lingfield Park as a three-year-old. She is a half-sister to Pas de Secrets, winner of the Songline Classic (LR), runner-up in the Norwegian Derby and third in the Oslo Cup (G3) for trainer Wido Neuroth. Geir Stabell
