FASTELLE, a late developing filly was off for a small health problem.
Her comeback was planned at Craon in Prix de Beauchêne, a race for 4 and 5 year-olds over a mile and a half.
Ridden by Pierre Charles Boudot, she started in 5th, 6th position and kept this place all around.
PC, hemmed in along the rail in the last bend could not do what he wanted and lost places… once she was relaunched, she performed a nice finishing straight. His commentary after the race: “this impediment cost me the second place, but I liked her.”
Good comeback for FASTELLE. Her owners Gold and Blue and her breeder Isabelle de Saint Anthost were satisfied.
