Bad draw in the stalls!

 

At Longchamp on June 4th, USHUAIA QUATZ ran very well as usual, in a “quinté” (big handicap) for fillies on 2200m (a mile and 6 furlongs).

Unfortunately, she had number one in the stalls and, at the moment of the finish, she got blocked along the rail. As soon as Thierry Jarnet found an opening, she sprang and only missed the third place by a nose.

It is not disgraceful to be 4th in a “quinté”, but it is annoying not to have had an opening earlier!

 

We are not discouraged, because she will surely win a good race soon.
