Debrief of a bad day!



Yesterday on June 4th at Auteuil, we had two runners: ACCENTUS in Prix Jean Victor (quinté, big handicap) and DONASLAND in Prix Ginetta II, a race for 4 and 5 year old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) fillies and mares. Nothing turned up as planned! ACCENTUS who was the favorite was at his best…Unfortunately, he started at the back of the field (God knows why??)…when we know that the horse has always to be well placed (4th or 5th) because at the back he loses his spirits and jumps badly… and this was what happened.

As to DONALSLAND ridden by Thomas Beaurain, she doesn’t like Auteuil and therefore she will go back to provincial racing…it is frustrating because in the morning she flies…

Who said that training horses was an easy job???
