James hit the ground running in his first season of training with the likes of Zoetic winning The St Hughes’s Fillies Stakes (listed). This season has seen James success continue to grow, he picked up his first Group 1 in only his second season training. This achievement came when El Bodegon made all to win the Criterium De Saint-Cloud (Group 1) on the 23rd October. The 2yr old son of Kodiac is no stranger to French racing, prior to his Group 1 victory in Saint-Cloud he won the Prix De Conde (Group 3) at Chantilly on the 29th September and was 3rd in the Prix La Rochette (Group 3) at Longchamp.

The yard has further showcased their 2yr old success this season with Qatar Racing Limited’s filly Mise En Scene who won the Prestige Stakes (Group 3) at Goodwood on the 28th August. She went on to run a creditable race in the Fillies Mile (Group 1) and now heads to Del Mar to take her place in The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf on Friday 5th November.
