Nice race for a serious gelding.

 

 

A good 3rd place for GOSPEL D’ALENE at Fontainebleau on September 19th, he was actually beaten by little for the first two places.  

 

 It was a flat race, Prix Baron de la Rochette, a maiden race for 3 year-old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) colts and geldings and over the same distance as the race for fillies 2600m (a mile and 5 furlongs).    

 

 Ridden close to the lead by Théo Bachelot, he did defend his position in the last meters of the long finishing straight. We can’t be ashamed of this result because we are certainly beaten by two good horses.   

 

  His future: holidays in his native Nièvre… and we’ll take him back in winter to go on schooling him over jumps to prepare Auteuil next spring.
