.... PAYNE’S GRAY had run several average races (he doesn’t always show good character).
At Niort, on September 10th, he was second in a flat race over 2200m (1 mile and 3 furlongs) ridden by the amateur rider Pierre Dubourg.
Patient, he started at the back of the field, came closer along the rail and finished well.
Go on this way young man!!…
