The news


It will eventually work!



This year, DERIGANOU ran twice: fell once, was stopped once !! 




  It started “to get on our nerves” because the horse is better than what his results show.  Fortunately yesterday at Auteuil we “became friends again” because he ran well


Actually DERIGANOU finished 6th in Prix Tanerko: a hurdle race for 5 year-olds and upwards over 3700m (2 miles and 2 ½ furlongs).    


Ridden by Thomas Beaurain, he started nice and quiet at the back of the field, came closer in the far straight and performed a nice finishing straight. 


 Feedback from Thomas : “I am sorry, I finished on my own along the rail on the inside, but the horse is so left-handed that I couldn’t do anything else. We would have finished better if we had been together with the others.”  


  DERIGANOU jumps very well and he will soon go chasing.
