STARTLING DU MAGNY bluffed us on September 29th at Auteuil when finishing 2nd of the chase Prix Violon II, which is a big handicap listed race.
Before the race, we didn’t expect such a good result as in her last three races, she fell twice and finished 6th. But one should not forget that before that she was nearly always in the finish and that she had already had good results at Auteuil. Arnaud de Chitray, her jockey, who had already ridden her at Angers in February 2011, discovered her again and found back a very good feeling with her.
At 6, the mare is mature and has still some ambitious objectives.
