YES ! Because we were used to win with ELAFONISSI… and on August 20th at Châteaubriant, she was “only” 4th in a hurdle race for 4 year-olds over 3400m (2 miles and 1 furlong)
What happened? Has the “machine” gone wrong? Absolutely not!
No, Miss ELAFONISSI was in season and as her jockey Clément Lefebvre told us “she was lifeless and without energy”… which is not herself!!
Therefore, no worry, it was only temporary…
