There is a race which is very expected by trainers and owners, it is Prix du Président de la République at Auteuil… It took place on April 22nd and we had ACCENTUS who had just won Prix Lutteur III, which is the prep for the big one. He finished 2nd, beaten by a nose, the shortest nose you have ever seen in racing in France!!
It was a very fast (they beat the record) and magnificent race with good competitors. And from the last bend, you could see who would be in the frame.
Ridden by Kilian Dubourg, ACCENTUS and the winner jumped the last hurdle together and fought to the post… Unfortunately we were second. But we are very proud of ACCENTUS who was off several times because of injuries and he came back stronger than ever. He will have a short holiday and we’ll aim for the good races in the autumn.
