The news


First time out…



…for PALMERIUM at Sables d’Olonne on October 9th in a maiden race for 2 year-olds over 1950m (a mile and 1¾ furlong).      


  Ridden by Maryline Eon, he finished 6th… very close! He started off the pace, came a bit closer in front, Maryline took her time and then he finished well (we had the feeling that a few strides further on, he would have taken a place)… we have to think about it.  


  When he gets tougher, he will probably be better on a longer distance.    


   We felt like mentioning his début, first of all because we like him and secondly because he is half-brother to Palinodie and Palmerino (yes, he is…). They have the same dam Palmeriade but PALMERIUM is by Full of Gold.  


 He belongs to Ecurie Five, Christophe Lebouc, Pierre Louis Bossy, Greg Boudot and Ecurie Magnien and was bred by Haras de Maulepaire.
