At Nantes on March 25th, ARISTO DES MOTTES ridden by Wilfrid Denuault finished 2nd over hurdles on the distance of 3500m (2 miles and 1 ½ furlong).
He was a bit keen from the start, settled down after 1000m (5 furlongs) but managed to stay in 3rd position. At the end of the bend, when entering the finishing straight, the two leaders slowed a bit and he found himself in the lead too soon. He finished very well but was beaten a length by a horse coming from behind.
This 4 year-old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) by Maresca Sorrento out of Kitch des Mottes has a nice future in front of him at Auteuil.
