Bonne Chance Farm, LLC & Stud R D I, LLC’s tough gelding, Editore (BRZ), added more blacktype to his resume yesterday when jockey Brice Blanc guided him to victory in the GIII Berkeley Handicap at Golden Gate Fields. A homebred for Stud RDI, LLC, Editore was a Group 1 winner in Brazil before moving to California where he has struggled to find the same brilliance he’d shown down south. However, with patience and persistence, trainer Paulo Lobo was able to return our son of Redattore (Brz) to his winning ways! We are looking forward to a fun 2018 with Editore!
After taking most of her 3 year old season off, Glorious Hour rewarded our patience with a 2 ½ length maiden special weight victory February 18th in the 1st at Santa Anita. An SF bred daughter of Bodemeister she is the half sister to multiple G1 winner Rock Fall and was part of our inaugural yearling purchases in September of 2015.
It was a big night for Team Bonne Chance on Monday, when our homebred filly by Medaglia d’Oro out of Canadian champion Sealy Hill, went through the ring at Keeneland’s September Yearling Sale (Hip 82) dropping the hammer at $1.25 million. Larry Best’s Oxo Equine acquired this attractive filly who is a half sister to Canadian champion Hillaby (Distorted Humor) as well as graded stakes winners Belle Hill (Sky Mesa) and Gale Force (Giant’s Causeway). We wish her new connections all the best and look forward to cheering her on as she begins her racing career!
It was a homerun kind of day yesterday when Bonne Chance scored two wins in two starts at Laurel Park. In less than ideal conditions, first time starters Goiaba (Speightstown) and Greek Mythology (Medaglia d’Oro) both pulled out the victories in Race 1 and 6 for trainer Arnaud Delacour. Both fillies were part of our inaugural yearling purchases from Keeneland’s 2015 yearling sale and were the first to carry the Bonne Chance Silks to victory.
