On March 25th at Auteuil, ACCENTUS won Prix Lutteur III by sheer fighting. It is a chase over 4400m (2 miles and 6 furlongs) which is a Listed race, a prep for Prix du Président de la République. Ridden by the young Kilian Dubourg who discovered the horse…ACCENTUS had a superb and smooth race without any mistake.
When after the last fence, the horse changed gear, the suspense raised to a climax and he gained meter after meter to eventually win by a head. Apart from the incredible joy of the owners, Monsieur Marchal and the Family Bossuet, there were two moving facts:
The second horse Fauburg Rosetgri is trained by Gabriel Leenders…..he was happy as well…but nevertheless!!!!
And Kilian Dubourg is the son of Christophe Dubourg who was a jockey in our stables for a long time and who had a nice career with us.
