Horse racing: "Hermès Baie is a crack", declares its trainer François Nicolle after the success of its champion in the Grande Course de Haies d'Auteuil


He left his immediate follower, Klassical Dream, at seven lengths. Hermès Baie caused a sensation in the Grande Course de Haies d'Auteuil.

His first name appears only very rarely.

However, the success of the Papot coat owes a lot to Nicole, the matriarch.

Hermes Bay

offered this family of passionate owners, who have never skimped on their investments, the chance to win the only Group I that was missing from their splendid track record, namely the Grande Course de Haies d'Auteuil.

“It all started at the end of the 1970s, confides the person concerned.

My husband had promised Yannick Fertillet to buy him a horse when he became a trainer.

When the time was right, I asked him to keep his promise, and it all went from there.

Then my sons took over, which allows us to live incredible moments like today.

“During this very tough 2022 edition, the resident of François Nicolle proved to be the strongest at the end of an uncompromising race.

Like a heavyweight fight,

he was the most solid and never wavered unlike his main adversaries, who however have nothing to be ashamed of their performance.

“As I said in your columns yesterday, it's a crack, savors François Nicolle, the winner's coach.

It's zinc!

I could have passed for a c… but he proves me right, and it will be even better in the fall.
