Good comeback race…

 

 

… of FARAFRA at Nantes on March 6th in Prix Souviens Toi, a race for 4 and 5 year-old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) in which she finished 2nd.     

  Ridden by Sébastien Martino, she started at the back of the field, because this filly has a lot of energy and needs to start off the pace.

Unfortunately in the far straight, a horse came close to her and put pressure on her, she took her bit and soon found herself close to the lead earlier than planned. In the finishing straight, the winner came next to her… and beat her by a length. We are satisfied with this come back because FARAFRA was not 100% ready and this race will do her good

 

 Next step: in 3 weeks Prix d’Estruval, a GR III for fillies and mares only.
