NEWS: Champers Elysees sold to leading Japanese owner
on 24 September 2020
The Group 1 winning mare will stay in training with Johnny Murtagh

MATRON Stakes winner Champers Elysees has been sold to prominent Japanese owner Teruya Yoshida.

The three-year-old gave trainer Johnny Murtagh his first Group 1 win in the mile heat at Leopardstown earlier this month, completing her rise from Curragh handicap victor to top-level success, via listed and Group 3 triumphs.

Champers Elysees had raced in the colours of Fitzwilliam Racing, but will now race for Yoshida, who has owned the likes of Elusive Kate, Sahpresa and White Muzzle in the past.

Murtagh tweeted: “We are delighted to welcome Mr Yoshida of Shadai Farm to Fox Covert Stables. Champers Elysees will now run in his famous colours.

“Her next intended engagement is the Sun Chariot Stakes G1 on Oct 3rd @NewmarketRace.”
