True to himself!

 

 

At Sables d’Olonne on June 19th, DE BON ALOI finished 4th in Prix du Pays des Dames, a flat race over 2700m (a mile and 5 ½ furlongs), ridden by Adrien Fouassier.

He took a good start and was well placed all around, at the entrance of the bend his jockey started asking him to go forward…. And Monsieur DE BON ALOI “stopped dead”!! Adrien told us: “I suddenly had nothing in my hands” then a few strides further, he started again and finished well.

It is always frustrating because he is a good horse who has nothing to prove but when he doesn’t want it…
