Tiger Tanaka Shines in Prix Marcel Boussac at ParisLongchamp
Tiger Tanaka enjoyed a smooth passage in a rough renewal of the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac, the filly quickened and battled all the way to the line to see off her rivals by three-quarters of a length. Tiger Tanaka won three claimers earlier in the season and booked her place in the field when winning a Group 3 at Deauville last time out.
Jessica Marcialis made history at ParisLongchamp, becoming the first female jockey to win a Group 1 in France and to make the victory even more special, the winning trainer was her partner Charley Rossi. Tiger Tanaka now heads to the Breeders Cup.
