…the young English jockey Ben Hicks at Lignières on March 5th. He rode BONANIVERSERE PAPA and finished 4th.
They started at the back of the filed, came closer in the far straight, were 4th at the last fence and unfortunately BONANIVERSERE was impeded by a loose horse in the last furlong , his jockey had to take him back not to bump into him. Without this incident we would have been 3rd.
Good first experience for this young jockey!
