The news







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!
