On Sunday, July 1st at Saint-Cloud, PALMERINO finished 5th in the “quinté” Prix d’Auxerre, a race for older horses over a mile and a half (red and yellow colors on the photograph).
Ridden by Eddy Hardouin, he had a very good race, you could even say “too good a race”! At mid finishing straight, you thought he would win but he “stopped”.
After the race when debriefing, you could think of different explanations: he lacked a race, the firm ground, etc…. Nevertheless PALMERINO was super and his next entries will be at Deauville.
