When finishing second at Pornichet over 2400m (a mile and a half), HONORIUS QUERCUS ran his real value.
Pierre Charles Boudot rode him in 2nd, 3rd position all around and accelerated at the entrance of the finishing straight. But the future winner found a gap along the rail and won easily. We are at our place.
HONORIUS is not a champion but he is nearly always in the frame.
