At Auteuil on May 27th, BOURGUEIL was back chasing. Actually, he had just won a cross-country race at Lion d’Angers.
Before the race, he was regarded as an outsider because there was quite good company in this Prix Jamin and BOURGUEIL was abandoned (the Equidia journalists just mentioned his number).
The distance of 4400m (2 miles and 6 furlongs) were in his favour. A good jumper, a long distance, it was fit for play and BOURGUEIL could try his luck … He ran very well and finished 4th, ridden by Sébastien Zuliani.
We know that the partners of the syndicate Ecurie Pied A L’Etrier were more than thrilled.
Now, BOURGUEIL is going to have a break for a few weeks.
