That once more she makes us satisfied with her second place.
At Maisons-Laffitte on July 17th, FILLE D’AVRIL ran very well again on a mile, ridden by Pierre-Charles Boudot.
Placed close to the lead, we thought she was weakening at a furlong from the post but it was without counting on her courage and pugnacity.
Her jockey told us that when he was at half a length of the lead horse, they were pushing him without being able to pass him.
FILLE D’AVRIL is used to the second place and it has now become a joke between us.
