Niels Petersen-trained Square De Luynes (Manduro) gave a powerful impression when he defended his title in the Group 3 Stockholm Cup International on Sunday.
Square De Luynes is owned by Stall Power Girl and won all three of his starts last year, including the Stockholm Cup International. Before Sunday’s race he had only run once this year when finishing third in the Group 3 Marit Sveaas Minnelöp at his hometrack Övrevoll in Oslo.
Pat Cosgrave rode Square De Luynes to victory and quickly followed up with another win, this time on board Hateya (Footstepsinthesand) in the Listed Lanwades Stud Stakes. The Jim Boyle-trained mare has ran in this race twice before, finishing fifth in 2018 and third in 2019.

Sarookh (by Speightstown), trained by Jessica Long at Jägersro in Sweden, took the Listed Wikingtryck Bro Park Sprint Championship. It was the first black-type victory for the five-year-old gelding.
