in sparkling order at the annual Coolmore open day on Sunday, Choisir was in
the frame overnight in Ireland after posting a new stakes-winner in Three Sea
The David Wachman trained colt was placed at his only three previous runs and broke his maiden in style when taking out the Listed Curragh Stakes over five furlongs by a neck under his own steam.
"He's always been a smart horse and has showed plenty from day one," said Wachman.
"He got tired in his first run at Naas, and I thought he'd win at Dundalk last weekend, but he was in the stalls for a long time there and went to sleep. He won well today, [jockey] Wayne [Lordan] didn't have to hit him and he has a bit of a future. He's a tough, hardy horse and he's very sound and straightforward. He is [entered] in some of the better races towards the back end of the season, so we'll see how he progresses."
Three Sea Captains is the first stakes-winner for La Tintoretta, a minor winner by Desert Prince from Group I Haydock Sprint Cup winner Lavinia Fontana.
He becomes the 42nd stakes-winner for Choisir (pictured) , who stands this spring at a fee of $27,500.
