On January 6th at Pau, he ran a hurdle “quinté” (big handicap), ridden by Wilfrid Denuault. He finished 2nd , not beaten much.
On a ground which had become heavy with the rain, ARISTO DES MOTTES started in the middle of the field. He came closer in the far straight, jumped the last hurdle side by side with the winner and missed the first place by very little.
A nice performance considering it was his first race at Pau.!
