The Japanese legendary sire Deep Impact missed out on the Epsom Derby with his

The Japanese legendary sire Deep Impact missed out on the Epsom Derby with his high class Japanese-bred colt Saxon Warrior's defeat on Saturday, but was quick to make up for it with Study of Man winning the French Derby (Prix du Jockey Club) at Chantilly on Sunday, June 3rd.
The Niarchos Family's Study of Man settled in mid-pack early under Stephan Pas quier and showed terrific acceleration to hold off the long-shot Patascoy (Fr) by a half-length. The Pascal Bary trained colt has provided the first Europe an Derby title for his sire Deep Impact.
Study of Man is bred and owned by the Niarchos Family's Flaxman Stables Irland Ltd., and out of Storm Cat mare Second Happiness, a daughter of the great racemare Miesque.
Deep Impact is quickly becoming the world's dominant stallion, and the French Derby victory reminds you to buy Deep Impact with 26 yearlings and 14 foals are available in the 2018 JRHA Select Sale at Northern Horse Park on July 9th and 10th.
