Hey Gaman finishes gallant second in French Guineas!

Sultan Ali’s Hey Gaman produced a career best in the Group One Poule d’Essai des Poulains when going down by only a neck in a driving finish.

Settled by James Doyle behind the leader US Navy Flag, Hey Gaman hit the front two furlongs out and out battled eventual third Dice Roll before going down by a neck to the fast-finishing Olmedo.  The performance was a career best and a big step up on his comeback third in the Group Three Greenham at Newbury.

Signs are good that this huge son of New Approach could improve further and the French Derby and the St James’ Palace at Royal Ascot are two of his next potential targets.
