Successful first time out jumping



At Châteaubriant on May 6th, FATINES ran over jumps for the first time: a hurdle race for 4 year-olds over 3400m (2 miles and 1 furlong).    


 We were looking forward to seeing her over jumps for the first time because we saw pleasant things in the morning. We were not disappointed as she won with class !!!    


  Ridden by Hugo Lucas, she started nice and quiet in 4th position, she jumped well and didn’t make any effort during the race.     


  At the last hurdle of the far straight, she took the lead because she jumped better than the others and Hugo let her go and she was not caught.


FATINES is by Spirit One out of Tadjike, she was bred by Haras de Maulepaire and belongs to Douglas McMillan and Etienne and Grégoire Leenders.
