FILLE D’AVRIL: what a race!

 

At Pornichet on December 1st, FILLE D’AVRIL was 2nd in a handicap on 1700m (a mile and ½ a furlong), ridden by Mickaël Barzalona.

She started at the back of the field and when in the far straight we didn’t expect much.

But getting out of the bend, she plunged on the side of the rail and performed a magnificent finishing straight, finishing close to the winner.

 

It has to be underlined that this mare is incredible: extraordinarily courageous and nearly all the time in the first five.
