Good race !


…for TINARILOU at Deauville on December 14th ridden by Sébastien Martino. In Prix de la Roche d’Oetre over 2500m (a mile and 4 ½ furlongs), the nice grey filly started in 5th, 6th position, kept her place all around and out of the bend she started accelerating with the rest of the field. Mid-straight, TINARILOU slightly took the lead… two other horses attacked her… the winner took two lengths and there was a photograph for second and third place.

Sébastien was disappointed: ”at mid straight, I was sure to win but once she had taken the advantage, she slightly pulled herself back and it cost me the second place.” She was 3rd in a good style: courageous, determined… and for the future, we now know that she shouldn’t take the advantage too soon.
