TRUCO ran first time out at Deauville on January 4th, he finished 3rd ridden by Sébastien Martino. In Prix Barelière, a maiden race for 3 year-olds over 1900m (9 furlongs and a half), they started at the back of the field. Out of the bend, he was still in the same position when Sébastien plunged along the inside rail and the machine TRUCO started and performed a fabulous finishing straight. When getting off, Sébastien said: “A fantastic turn of foot!!”
This beautiful horse is by Sepoy out of Tropa de Elite was bred by his owner Arthur Mendes at Haras du Mézeray. We are already looking forward to seeing him again!
