Arrival of the fifth:
13 - 11 - 7 - 15 - 4
After a sensational Sunday on the ParisLongchamp track, with in particular the victory of Tony Parker's silks in the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches (Gr. I), thanks to the champion
, the Vichy racecourse (Allier) took the relay for the first quinté of the week.
This European race pitted fourteen trotters aged 7 to 10 inclusive, on the 2,950m course, after the withdrawal of
Fly to the Moon
(n°3) and that of
Escapade du Digeon
This event gave pride of place to the competitors in sight with in particular the victory of the great favorite
(n°13), offered at 8/10.
Winner of a similar event on this right-hand course, on May 2, this 7-year-old gelding confirmed, and won the fifth quinté of his career.
Even if he had to go the distance, his trainer and driver Jean-Michel Bazire took to the train on his own one lap from the goal before placing an excellent acceleration to break away from his opponents: "He won easily at underlined the multiple gold sulky at the microphone of Equidia.
He is a horse which is very successful in fifths.
You wouldn't have thought that of him at first because he was short and had character.
He also had leg problems at 3 and 4 years old.
His worries probably allowed him to age very well.
🏆 Farrell Seven (J.-M. Bazire) won with great authority in today's #Quinté+ on @HippodromeVichy.
💪🏽 He thus won his 2⃣th consecutive Quinté+ and remains undefeated in 3⃣ outings on this track!
