After a year off, on March 2nd at Deauville, PALMERINO ran remarkably well, finishing 2nd in Prix des Falaises over 3400m (2 miles and 1 furlong).
Pierre-Charles Boudot, his jockey, was quite enthusiastic when getting off: “I was well placed all around and outside the bend when I opened my hands, he started very fast, too fast actually…and we found ourselves in the lead. At 50m from the post PALMERINO weakened as it was a come back race!”
His owners Marie-Cécile de Saint-Seine and Paul Terpereau were surprised and thrilled as they didn’t think the horse could be in the frame after such a long time off.
Conclusion: we should have a nice year with him!
