FAN OF SEA won Prix du Bourbonnais (Gr 2), a flat race for 3 year-old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) over a mile and a half.
What a good race!
He took the lead from the start and kept it all around… At the end of the bend, he started going forward, but at mid straight, the horse who eventually finished second, came to attack him… but FAN OF SEA resisted to win by a head… What a relief!
Gregory Benoist, his jockey, was enthusiastic: ”A good, very courageous horse”.
The family can be proud because FAN OF SEA comes from the breeding operation Gondouin- Leenders, the grand dam L’Allier produced Gondleen, Kusea, Chriseti, L’Artiste Français, then Kusea produced Délirant (by Khalkevi), FAN OF SEA (by Shamalgan) and the youngest one Hommage (by Gris de Gris)…
