The news


At last!!



On July 25th at Sables d’Olonne, BONNE MEMOIRE (by Pedro The Great out of Bonne Gargotte) finished 3rd in Prix Djarvis, a race for 3 year-olds over 2700m (a mile and 5 ½ furlongs).   


 Ridden by Soufiane Saadi, she started in 3rd, 4th position, and pulled a bit at the beginning of the race.  


When getting out of the bend, Soufiane placed her in the middle of a rather long field… then in the finishing straight, she had a small blank but started again and finished fast.


Conclusion: it was a good race for BONNE MEMOIRE who at last found her best trip.

 We’ll go on that way…Genetics are not obvious because her sire was a short distance horse…and her brother DE BON ALOI was a pure miler even if at the end of his career we ran him on longer trips  ( because of his character , we tried all possibilities).
