Group 1 third for Ocovango

15 July 2013

By the time the gaps came, the impressive winner Flintshire had flown but Ocovango finished well to take third, beaten just two and a half lengths.

Fabre said: “He ran well but was a little caught for speed. He would have preferred slightly softer ground and a faster pace.”

Ocovango is out of an unraced Gone West mare in Crystal Maze. Crystal Maze is a daughter of Crystal Music, a Group 1-winning two-year-old for Lord and Lady Lloyd-Webber.
