1st time starter La Jonction wins impressively

LA JONCTION (f, 2, Kingman), bred by Haras d'Etreham and sold at the Arqana Yearling Sale last year,  was swiftly away from an outer gate and took immediate hold of this first go.
Untroubled on the front end throughout, the 3-1 second choice was shaken up entering the final furlong and on cruise mode in the closing stages to easily outclass Zirochka (Fr) (Penny=s Picnic {Ire}) by an impressive 4 1/2 lengths. Half to a yearling colt by Siyouni (Fr), she is the fourth of five foals and second winner out of G3 Prix Allez France and G3 La Coupe placegetter Harem Lady (Fr) (Teofilo {Ire}).
Her dam is kin to GIII Dixiana Bourbon S. winner Keep Quiet (Fr) (Elusive City) and MGSW GII San Clemente H. victress Little Treasure (Fr) (Night Shift), who in turn produced three black-type performers headed by MGISP GII La Canada S. heroine More Chocolate (Malibu Moon).
