I think Zarkallani beat maybe one or two horses. They threw him in the deep end too soon.
It would appear so.

Sottsass was impressive though. And I hadn't realized he was the younger brother of Sistercharlie! What a nice producer Starlet's Sister has turned out to be.

Thanks for the update on My Sister Nat. I do really fancy that they have bred Starlet's Sister to different stallions; it seems she crosses well with just about everyone.

There was a nice article in Monday's TDN about the "sisters."

The Weekly Wrap: Not Just A Sister Act
It is said that revenge is a dish best served cold. Peter Brant’s revenge mission was delivered under a blisteringly hot Chantilly sun but, for the American owner of Prix du Jockey Club winner Sottsass (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}), it sure did taste sweet.

Two years ago on the same stretch of turf, Brant’s newly acquired Sistercharlie (Ire) (Myboycharlie {Ire}) was hampered in her run just over a furlong from home in the Prix de Diane and ended up finishing a running-on second to Senga (Blame). That filly alone has more than atoned for initial disappointment and was crowned champion turf mare in America last year after four Grade 1 victories. Brant’s belief in the family has been strong, and he bought Sistercharlie’s half-sister, the Group 3 winner My Sister Nat (Fr) (Acclamation {GB}), last season before shipping her to America to join her elder sibling in Chad Brown’s team.

Yeah. Her 2yo colt is by Charm Spirit, her yearling colt by Fastnet Rock, her 2019 filly is by Dubawi and they sent her back to him, the first time she has revisited a stallion.

Wasn't sure where to post this but across the pond, Jamie Osborne's barn experienced a fire. It looks as though part of his house burned down but thankfully no human or horse (or any other animal for that matter) was injured. Furthermore, Constanzia (a 2yo filly) who was stuck in her stall due to the fire being too close to her stall door, won today at Chelmsford.

Jamie Osborne is a big social media personality, some of you might know him for his naughty dogs Bobby and Bridget who love to chase the 'big rabbits' on the gallops. He was being as positive as he could be about the whole situation on his Twitter this morning but seeing how much Constanzia's win meant to him today made me very emotional. Hope the yard recovers soon.

My goodness, that's awful. So glad all the people, horses and pets are okay. I have seen those hilarious videos on Twitter. Hope Jamie's well insured and can rebuild and recover quickly!
