IT was good to see Romanised win the Group 1 Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard Jacques le Marois at Deauville on Sunday, a notable triumph for his connections and an important one for the horse’s future.

The Ken Condon-trained bay was a pattern-placed winner from four starts at two, but a shock 25/1 victory in the Group 1 Irish 2000 Guineas was the only time he was even placed in five runs at three.
