BOURGUEIL is going up the scales

 

On June 3rd at Compiègne, BOURGUEIL was 5th in a chase on 3500m (2 miles and 1 ½ furlong) ridden by Wilfrid Denuault..

He started in the middle of the field, jumped big over the large green fences at the beginning of the race and he then came closer and performed a very good finish (50m further and we would have been 3rd).

 

We can be satisfied with this 5th place for our AQPS (non-thoroughbred horse) who is not mature yet.

You have also to take into account the fact he was running against more experienced thoroughbreds and that he was top weight: 70 kgs.

 

Well done “little fellow”!
