The news


Settlement of accounts…


…..directly on Equidia by a Christophe Soumillon furious not to have been chosen to ride URBAINE in Prix des AQPS du Centre at Vichy on July 17th.

For about 5 minutes, we had a show with a very nervous Soumillon reproaching us not to have accepted to play his game, meaning not to have helped him to beat I.Mendizabal’s record: 7 wins on the same day. It was not our game, it was his!

To try and beat this record, he called all the trainers who had a first chance. We preferred Fabrice Véron who had already won with the filly and who rides for us quite regularly.


Racing results: we had a very good evening and won with URBAINE and, cherry on the cake, we had 5 free minutes on television about Etienne Leenders….What an advertising!! Thank you Christophe!.
