Half a success….

 

….for UN SUCCES who took a good second place at Auteuil on November 10th in Prix Thuya, a race for 5 year-old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) on 4300m (2 miles and 5 ½ furlongs). It was his second chase, the first one took place at Fontainebleau a year ago.

It was a good performance as it was his first time on the distance and also first time over the “big ones” of the far straight which he jumped very well.

The only problem was his hesitation at the double fence where he veered to the right and therefore lost ground with the first horse. Fortunately Wilfrid Denuault is a rider with a good seat, otherwise he would have parted from the horse!.
