NOUVELLE DESTINEE: full of incident finish


On August 10th  at Lion d’Angers, NOUVELLE DESTINEE finished 3rd ridden by Tony Piccone.

At the 3rd, 4th place, they had not an easy race, as from the start there was a fall and the loose horse was in front of them. In that case it is not easy for the jockey who always fears that the loose horse might shy and push your horse and make him swerve.


At the entrance of the finishing straight, once the race was launched, the loose horse messed about going to the right and then to the left….and the jockeys finished as best as they could.


As a result, NOUVELLE DESTINEE ran well, finished well and the distance of 3000m ( a mile and 7 furlongs) seemed to suit her.
