On May 29th at Lion d’Angers, a mythic race was taking place: The Anjou Loire Challenge, a listed cross-country race on 7300m (4 miles and 4 ½ furlongs), the longest race in the world.
Ridden by Ludovic Solignac, KAPVILLE was our representative. And for his first attempt in this race, he finished 3rd behind two good horses, particularly seasoned on this race-course.
Kept at the back of the field all around, he found himself in 6th position in the last time around and performed a beautiful finishing straight making his owner Audouin Maggiar (who had managed to be free to come and see his horse) very, very pleased.
We have to congratulate the jockey and the horse for their very good race as it was a first time for both.
KAPVILLE has taken over after CHRISETI even if our grey horse will be in our hearts for ever.
