On January 11th at Pornichet, ECU DES FOSSES finished 2nd in Prix Laffitte, a maiden race over 3100m (1 mile and 7 ½ furlongs).
He didn’t take a good start and it took a full trip around the race-course for this superb bay horse to understand what he was supposed to do!! His jockey, Arnaud Bourgeais made the decision to go forward and took the lead one turn before the finishing post. Good for him, because in front the horse was easy and relaxed. Well balanced in the finishing straight, he went on and was just beaten three quarters of a length by the favorite.
ECU DES FOSSES is by Denham Red out of Sarah des Fosses, he belongs to Pierre de la Guillonnière and was bred by Joël Choveau.
