Good come back race…

 

 

…for OR GRIS at Saint-Cloud on March 15th in the “quinté” (big handicap) for 4 year-olds over a mile and a half. He finished 5th ridden by Alexis Badel.

 

He started in 2nd, 3rd position… and the race was regular. OR GRIS is a very easy horse that you can place anywhere in the field.

 

Alexis chose to attack outside the last bend because he didn’t want to find himself blocked behind a “dead” horse. Although he came a bit too soon, OR GRIS performed a nice finishing straight but weakened in the last 100m (half a furlong).  

 

 Debriefing: “Not quite ready but nevertheless a good come back race!”
