First win in a “quinté”


…for AMIRANT on July 2nd at Compiègne. 

We drew conclusions from his previous race when he was ridden at the back of the field and didn’t finish. This time, the instructions were to ride him close to the lead….and it worked! He won with class and a nice margin.


For the petty side of history, AMIRANT was bought in a claiming race at Deauville in August 2011 for Michel Marchal who wanted a jumper. But, as this horse by Shirocco out of A Winning Dream shows real abilities on the flat, we keep him in this discipline for the time being. Next entry at Deauville this summer.
