BALNILLA is improving!


On April 20th at Lion d’Angers, BALNILLA finished 3rd over hurdles in a race for AQPS (non-thoroughbred), ridden by Wilfrid Denuault.


In order to master her spirit, Wilfrid chose to isolate her and to start at the back of the field. As she jumped well, she came closer little by little and performed a very nice finishing straight.

When he came back, her jockey said:” We have to go on treating her this way and she will go on improving”.


Her owners, members of Ecurie Le Pied A L’Etrier, were thrilled to see their filly behaving so well.


We drank champagne to this 3rd place….How are we going to celebrate when she wins!!!
