2023 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere Redemption for Rosallion

On an international afternoon at Longchamp Racetrack on Sunday, Britain got a piece of the pie when Rosallion made amends for a recent defeat with an impressive stakes breakthrough in the 2023 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere.

Just two weeks after turning in a real clunker, Rosallion was back on the up-and-up when making his stakes breakthrough in the Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp on Sunday, the British raider leading home Irish colt Unquestionable and local favorite Beauvatier.

Odds-on when beaten on sticky ground at Doncaster, Rosallion was 6-1 second-choice to bounce back on a much faster surface and showed exactly what he is made of under Sean Levey.

He was a little rank in the early stages but then settled down and came with a smooth run to hit the front 100 yards out, winning by a length with more in hand than the margin suggests. Unquestionable had a length and a half to spare over even-money shot Beauvatier.

“It was so disappointing the last time he ran,” said trainer Richard Hannon. “I never thought there was a chance he could get beat. This ground suited him and he is an extremely talented horse.”

That is probably it for the year for Rosallion, so he is unlikely to take advantage of the win-and-in pass for the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf. The runner-up Unquestionable and his barnmate Henry Adams, who was fourth, may yet head to California.
