VRAIMENT MAG for the first time in a cross-country race

 

On March 22nd at Blain, VRAIMENT MAG discovered another discipline which seemed to suit him: he finished second ridden by Sébastien Zuliani. It was a cross-country race for 5 and 6 year-old horses on 4500m (2 miles and 6 ½ furlongs).

Short of speed, he started at the back of the field but, thanks to his qualities as a jumper, he didn’t stop improving his position. Unfortunately, he jumped the one but last fence too big and slightly nosed-down…which cost him the win. 

 

VRAIMENT MAG is a six year-old thoroughbred by Saint des Saints out of Koolanooga. He didn’t run much because he is a big late horse measuring 1,75m (17.2 hh). Antoine-Audouin Maggiar is owner and breeder.
