…for ARZAL who ran first time out directly in a chase at Maure-de-Bretagne on February 9th. He finished 2nd ridden by Wilfrid Denuault.
He started in the middle of the field, took the lead at the beginning of the far straight but got beaten by an experienced horse at the last fence.
ARZAL, a 4 year-old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) by Vendangeur out of Ghostaline was waited for because he was not precocious. But very soon we realised that his qualities as a jumper would allow him to run first time out directly over jumps.
An interesting recruit.
