#DARLEYSERIES : ALLEZ LES BLEUS
The #DarleySeries is made up of three races for 2-year-old colts and fillies, run over 5 ½ or 6 furlongs in July and August:
Darley Prix Robert Papin (Gr2) on 21st July in Deauville
Darley Prix de Cabourg (Gr3) on 28th July in Deauville
Darley Prix Morny (Gr1) on 18th August in Deauville.
The Darley Stud has been a long-term partner of France Galop.
Darley is sponsoring the Darley Prix Morny (Gr1) day, which also features the Darley Prix Jean Romanet (Gr1), since 2006. At the heart of the Barrière de Deauville meeting, in August around the yearling sales, this partnership allows Darley to showcase the exceptional quality of its sires around the globe thanks to the international renown of this meeting.
This year, Darley will also be associated with two traditional launchpads to the Darley Prix Morny, which takes place this year on August 18th, as always in Deauville. This is the Darley Prix Robert Papin (Gr2) and the Darley Prix de Cabourg (Gr3). These two juvenile championships are run on July 21 for 1,100 meters in Maisons-Laffitte and July 28 for 1,200 meters in Deauville respectively.
These three 2-year Group races, which have seen many young champions take off to a great career in the past, will form the Darley Series.
Darley are offering to the winning breeder of the Darley Prix Morny (the final in the series) a 2019 nomination up to the value of €10,000. However if the same horse has also won the Darley Prix Robert Papin or Darley Prix de Cabourg en route to winning the Darley Prix Morny this will be increased up to the value of €20,000. *
In addition, the winning owners of each of the three races will be invited to the Darley Stallion Parade in 2020.
