Our good horse got injured yesterday after the finish of the “quinté” (big handicap) in which he took part at Vichy, he nevertheless finished 4th, ridden by
Total fracture of a hind leg… and we all know that serious fractures can’t be repaired on horses.
We are all very sad, because the 8 year-old PALMERINO had not only he a nice career at a good level but on top of that he was a very nice horse.
Always in the frame…he won and was placed in “quintés” (his favorite racecourse was Saint-Cloud).
We think of his owners: Marie Cécile de Saint-Seine and Paul Terpereau, his exercise rider Jean Frédéric and Grégoire and Etienne who saw him every day.
This morning, it was difficult to see his box…empty!
