On May 7th at Saint-Cloud, PALMERINO finished 3rd in Prix de l’Aquitaine: “quinté” (big handicap) over 3100m (a mile and 7 ½ furlongs).
Ridden by Pierre Charles Boudot, he started in the middle of the field and had a very smooth race.
At the entrance of the finishing straight, PC took PALMERINO out in the middle of the track and they started accelerating well.
We thought it was “done”, but there was a strong fight with three other competitors. The distances at the finish were: head, short head, head!
