2023 Prix Marcel Boussac Opera Singer hits high note

A star was born at Longchamp Racetrack on Sunday, with Irish filly Opera Singer running her rivals ragged in the 2023 Prix Marcel Boussac and cruising by five lengths – a trip to the Breeders’ Cup could be next.

The Marcel Boussac was over long before the fat lady sang, with Opera Singer blowing the opposition away at Longchamp on Sunday, romping by five lengths from Rose Bloom and Les Pavots to set up a possible assault on the G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf.

The daughter of Justify was totally dominant, the 8-5 favorite on the lead throughout and clearing right away through the final furlong for a dazzling success. Runner-up Rose Bloom had three-quarters of a length in hand over third-choice Les Pavots but the race was only about the winner.

“That was a very strong performance, very impressive,” said jockey Ryan Moore. “She showed plenty of speed but could certainly stay further.”

This was Opera Singer’s third win from five starts and her second at stakes level. Trainer Aidan O’Brien, winning a joint-record fifth Boussac, may make the most of the win-and-in conditions and send her to California, depending on how she comes out of the race.

O’Brien won the Juvenile Fillies Turf 12 months ago with Meditate; Opera Singer – a half-sister to 2015 Breeders’ Cup winner Hit It A Bomb – looks even better.
