Haunui Farm stallion Showcasing (GB) (Oasis Dream) has reached the quarter century mark for stakes winners with his three-year-old son Dice Roll (FR) staking his claim for the G1 Poule d'Essai des Poulins - the French 2000 Guineas equivalent - in a months time with a five-length demolition of his opposition in the G3 Prix Djebel at Deauville overnight. The colt made all the running with victory never in doubt taking his tally to four wins from five starts to date.
With the European flat racing season just starting to get into full swing, Showcasing's European success looks set to continue over the coming months as things ramp up towards Guineas weekend at Newmarket, followed by the French and Irish equivalents in May. Early June sees the running of the English and French Oaks and Derbies whilst at the end of June, the focus will swing to the Royal Ascot meeting with plenty of elite level racing to follow.
Showcasing is currently back at his Northern Hemisphere base of Whitsbury Manor stud serving a full book of mares at a fee of £35,000.
