Satisfying comeback

 

 

At Auteuil on March 3rd, RADIOLOGUE finished 3rd in Prix Karcimont, the Sunday “quinté” (race in which the punters have to find the first five) ridden by Clément Lefebvre.

It was a comeback race after two months off. Therefore, the orders were to start off the pace and get closer nice and quiet in the last five furlongs. Everything went fine, but at the first fence of the far straight, a horse fell in his legs….breathing space!! Clément said: “I closed my eyes, thinking it was finished”!! But no, RADIOLOGUE managed to stay on his legs…but had to make big efforts to be back in the race. This incident cost us a better place!                                                                                                                                                    

Next step: Prix Lutteur III on March 24th.
