SHAKHELYA had a comeback race at Châteaubriant on May 25th in a maiden race for fillies over 1m5f.
She finished 5th ridden by Ronan Thomas. She started close to the lead (which was not planned) but there was a bit of a mess in the first bend and therefore Ronan made the decision to go forward and take the lead.
Ronan told us that in the finishing straight he made the mistake to fight with the winner who had accelerated all of a sudden and that if he had not done so he would have been 2nd.
A good debriefing and a good come back race… As a conclusion, we have a good filly!
