It is a duel that we would have been curious to see on a football field, or rather on a basketball court, of which Antoine Griezmann is a fan.
But it finally took place at the racecourse, by interposed horses.
This Tuesday in Chantilly, Txope, the horse of the Atlético player's stable, was at the start of a race labeled Group 3 during the Prix Miesque against Mangoustine, who was racing for the team of the former basketball player. Tony Parker.

"The team wins the first group in its history with a magnificent filly who has only made progress this year," said Clément Troprès, deputy president of Infinity Nine Horses, the team of TP.
Our results go way beyond anything we could imagine this year.
Tony's lucky star is there, not to mention the various associates and coaches with whom we share these magnificent moments.
