He was last seen winning the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Poulains (Group 1 PA) at Saint Cloud in October.
In the hands of Julien Augé, he went straight to the lead in this six-runner race for four-year-old Purebred Arabians over 1,900m and there he stayed.
The race was a walkover. Amyr Du Soleil colt won by four and a half lengths.
In second was Artemis, also carrying the blue and white stars of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed, trained by Elisabeth Bernard and ridden by Olivier Peslier.
This was a display of dominance that bodes well for Amyr Du Soleil’s 2020 campaign, when he takes on his elders, as noted by the winning trainer Thomas Fourcy.
‘He is a very high-class colt, said Fourcy, ‘and he was ready for the race today. He will have to compete with the older horses this year, a category where his owner has other first-class competitors, such as Ebraz.
Amyr Du Soleil is by the champion sire Amer. He began his racing career in the colours of his breeder, Lisa and Pierre Deymonaz, before transferring to those of Sheikh Mohamed, following his maiden debut when he finished second.
He then promptly went on to win his first Group race, the Prix Tidjani (Group 3 PA).
He is out of Balladore (Dormane), a full sister to Dormah de Brugère, a seven-time winner including the Jumeirah International Stakes (Group 2 PA) and the Arabian International Stakes (Group 2 PA).
