Back to confidence…



BALKANIE discovered Auteuil on June 23rd in a hurdle race for 3 year-old fillies over 3500m (2m1 1/2f), Prix du Bois Rouaud. She finished 2nd. Ridden by Ludovic Philipperon, she stayed in the middle of the field, when coming to the last bend, there was some interference, but she managed to get out of it as she was on the outside. 


 Then, she performed a nice finishing straight and missed the first place by little.  


 Qualities of this filly: very energetic, gifted over jumps and very cool!   


 She is by Balko, was bred by SCEA des Prairies and belongs to Ecurie JAB and Castillon Bloodstock. 


   BALKANIE will improve for this race and she showed us that we can have ambitions with her!
