A big regret


FORLAS D’AIRY fell on the racecourse of Senonnes on July 14th when he was doing his comeback in a hurdle race for 4 year-olds over 3700m (2 miles and 2 ½ furlongs).


  Another horse fell in front of him at the last but one hurdle and provoked his fall… when things don’t go the right way!!   


We had Clément Lefebvre, his jockey, on the phone who told us: “At the start, I made the mistake to stay along the inside rail which meant that he didn’t jump regularly… from the moment I went to the outside, he jumped better. When the other horse made me fall, I was coming nicely and I had resources, I would have been second!!!”   


 You don’t invent it…FORLAS is a good horse!
