In the colours of Al Shaqab Racing, Style Setter (Style Vendôme), who debuted for a modest 8th place last December, put her best foot forward today to win on just her second career start in the Prix Comete at Lyon La Soie, France. She sat in 5th position until the final turn of the 2,150m race when she began to make up ground on the leaders. She hit the front 100m from the post with plenty in hand to win by 2 ½ lengths in front of Varvara (Hallowed Crown). She is trained in Chantilly by Nicolas Clement and was ridden by promising apprentice jockey Thomas Trullier.

Style Setter was also bred by Al Shaqab Racing and is by Style Vendôme who will stand at Haras du Grand Courgeon in 2020.
