A treat for the observers!

At Pau on January 29th, EMIRA DU GOUET gave us a magnificent show! 

   In a cross-country race over 2m4½f, she was fantastic over the big fences and in particular over the big banks and road crossings. 

    She won easily ridden by Mickael Mingant who was quite moved after the race.

   How pleasant it was to read all the congratulation messages from the partners of Ecurie Le Mors aux dents who are always so pleased to see their horses run.

At Pau, on January 29th, RADIOLOGUE finished 4th in a hurdle race over 2m3f.

On a ground which was getting more and more heavy as the day went on, our horse didn’t seem to be quite at ease and on top, a big mistake over the second fence didn’t help him to be “in the race”.

 Ridden by Félix de Gilles, RADIOLOGUE finished courageously as usual and got the 4th place.

He’ll come back to Anjou, have a little rest and will aim at racing in Anjou and at Compiègne.

He is improving

At Pau on January 24th, GENGIS KHEL finished 3rd in a chase over 2m3f.  

  This big, late horse still needs to build himself up. He made a few mistakes over some fences at the beginning of the race… and then little by little, he jumped better and finished well.  

  His jockey Félix de Gilles told us that he horse needs to get stronger.

To see again…

… on a less heavy ground.

 Our SHAMDACK finished 5th in a hurdle race over 2m½f at Pau on January 17th, ridden by Félix de Gilles.    

 He ran seriously but his jockey told us that he was not yet strong enough to deal with such a heavy ground.

  Some rest and he’ll run in Anjou on better ground.

…can indeed win when he wants it!   

At Pornichet on January 14th, his win couldn’t actually be contested… he took a good start, close to the lead, accelerated and left his competitors on the spot…

  Jacky Nicoleau, his jockey, gets on very well with him and rides him up to perfection! 

On top of that, the AWT suits the horse perfectly.

An easy win!

How good it was to see RADIOLOGUE offering us our first winner of the year, we love this horse! 

 Ridden by Félix de Gilles, the horse performed a superb race, and at the entrance of the finishing straight, we could see he was going better than the others. When he accelerated after the last hurdle, we could see him winning easy!   

  Congratulations to his owners Loic and Benjamin Glemin and well done to our team.

Back to himself!

Our TRUCO finished 3rd in a flat race over 1m1½f at Deauville on January 3rd 2021. Ridden by Axelle Nicco, he missed the start but his jockey didn’t worry and brought him back with the field nice and quiet.

 At the entrance of the finishing straight, TRUCO changed gear and at a furlong from home he asked for a breather… and in spite of that managed to finish quite well. We are very happy for several reasons:   

 -he had not run for 8 months following castration. This operation was quickly decided as he didn’t finish his races and seemed to be annoyed by slightly too big testicles! It was a good decision.

–he was our first runner 

 -TRUCO ran for the first time with the colours of Ecurie Muserolle.

 –And Arthur Mendes, his breeder sent us a SMS from Brazil as he was quite happy to see the horse behaving well.

He ran for the first time over jumps...

SHAMDAK finished 5th first time over hurdles in a race for 3 year-olds over 2m½f. 

 It was at Pau on December 31st.

  Ridden by Arthur Nail, the horse behaved well but unfortunately he made mistakes on the flat because of the very heavy going. And obviously, he doesn’t like that!    

His jockey confirmed it: “where the ground was firmer, he was going easy but in the last bend where the going was very heavy, he shortened his action and didn’t finish as I thought he would.” 

 SHAMDAK belongs to Ecurie JAB and Paul Terpereau, he was bred by His Highness K. Aga Khan. He is by Intello out of Shamsa.

A filly…

…who is learning her job.  

 Our HERMINE MAG finished 4th second time out at Pornichet on December 26th. Ridden by Christopher Grosbois, she performed a serious race, was well placed in the finishing straight but stayed on in the same pace. 

 Debriefing: a serious filly, not mature yet, needs to run and she should improve for this race. HERMINE MAG belongs to her breeder Antoince Maggiar, she is by Silver Frost out of Reine de l’Aunay.

A good race…

…for SHAKHELAYA who ran at Pau on December 24th in a hurdle race for 3 year-olds. 

   Ridden by Arthur Nail, she performed a good race, hesitating at times…but nothing too bad… she finished  4th.                                                                                                                                         

 We were satisfied because she still lacks experience compared to the horses who finished in front of her.                                                                                                                                            

 One to follow.
