RAISING RIVER: how pleased...

 

 

….we were when this nice grey horse won at Clairefontaine on June 30th over 2400m (a mile and a half), ridden by Pierre Charles Boudot.

 

At the beginning of the race they were in 3rd, 4th position and the attacks started from the entrance of the straight. RAISING RIVER fought courageously to win by the shortest of noses!!

 

Pierre-Charles said: ”he is easy to ride and very courageous but he doesn’t do more than you want him to do.”

 

Now, he will have 3 weeks off to be at his best to start the second part of the year.

 

The owners of the syndicate Le Pied A L’Etrier are over the moon because they have become

 

quite attached to this nice grey horse and they all look forward to celebrating this win with champagne.
