The news


Back to himself!


Our TRUCO finished 3rd in a flat race over 1m1½f at Deauville on January 3rd 2021. Ridden by Axelle Nicco, he missed the start but his jockey didn’t worry and brought him back with the field nice and quiet.


 At the entrance of the finishing straight, TRUCO changed gear and at a furlong from home he asked for a breather… and in spite of that managed to finish quite well. We are very happy for several reasons:   


 -he had not run for 8 months following castration. This operation was quickly decided as he didn’t finish his races and seemed to be annoyed by slightly too big testicles! It was a good decision.

–he was our first runner 

 -TRUCO ran for the first time with the colours of Ecurie Muserolle.

 –And Arthur Mendes, his breeder sent us a SMS from Brazil as he was quite happy to see the horse behaving well.
