MAINVILLIERS won first time out Prix d’Echarbot, a hurdle race for 3 year-olds over 3400m (2 times and one furlong). He started in the middle of the field, was very professional, negotiated each jump well…then at the entrance of the finishing straight, he arrived at the last hurdle in 3rd position and finished very fast on the outside.
Commentary of his jockey Clément Lefebvre: “He is not fully mature but has a big potential!”
MAINVILLIERS had some pressure because his brother is LE GRAND LUCE, a star of Auteuil… he is by Dream Well out of Réaction Rapide.
Bred by Haras de Maulepaire, he belongs to 4 partners: Madame de Tarragon, Richard Corveller, Loic Glemin and Douglas McMillan.
Congratulations to them as they were patient with him. Actually, MAINVILLIERS being a late horse, they gave him his chance and didn’t try to do more than he was able to.
