The news





On December 18th at Pau, DEAUSEILLE ran a chase: Prix A. de Portago over 3900m (2 miles and 3 1/2 furlongs). She didn’t finish her race, Stéphane Paillard stopped her…

Explanation: he was too offensive in his way to ride her (the instructions were 5th /6th) and the mare could not breathe properly… as a result when they accelerated, she couldn’t cope and Stéphane had to stop her. Actually it was nearly a comeback race as she did not finish her last two races because she fell.

There is something positive about this race at Pau… She performed a perfect race, jumped well without any hesitation and she didn’t seem to fear the fences.

It is infuriating because we know she is a good mare, but success isn’t there yet!
