Rhododendron is now holds two Gr1 wins to her name – the first the Gr1 Fillies Mile and more recently in France, after securing the Gr1 Prix Des L’Opera on Arc day. Magical finished fourth on the day in her Gr1 after encountering traffic problems.

Rhododendron was crowned Cartier Champion 2YO Filly in Ireland and her younger sister looks to be following in her footsteps.

Flying The Flag has been all the rage this season with his family frequenting the international news and his first crop of foals impressing breeders country wide.
