Group victory for Arrowfield
The lightly-race four-year-old SKYWARD posted a remarkable performance to land the Gr.3 Prix de Reux over 2500m in John Messara’s famous yellow and black checkered silks. The striking son of Camelot was unbeaten in three starts last season, culminating in the Listed Prix Turenne at Saint-Cloud over the Classic trip. The Arrowfield Stud supremo bought into him over the winter with original owner Arno Curty staying in for a quarter. While the Melbourne Cup is obviously on his connections’ minds, options are currently being weighed up considering the specific constraints imposed on overseas challengers this year in response to the Covid-19 epidemic.
