On March 12th at Saint-Cloud, he won Prix du Pays Basque (a big handicap) without any worry, ridden by Vincent Cheminaud.
PALMERINO took a good start and was in a good position all around. But at the entrance of the finishing straight, he found himself closed in along the rail. Fortunately his jockey managed to get out and eventually when the horse was well balanced, he produced a good change of pace moving very well to finish.
First “quinté” for PALMERINO, and also first win of the year for Vincent Cheminaud.
This super, courageous horse by Doctor Dino out of Palmeriade belongs to Joël Blandin and was bred at Haras de Maulepaire.
