….had a better place but for the dangerous riding of Ch. Soumillon.
Actually on May 9th , at Bordeaux, we ran a “Quinté” (big handicap) with DE BON ALOI ridden by Pierre Charles Boudot.
In, the finishing straight, where the race started to be launched, Mr. Soumillon changed line and doing so bumped into two horses including ours who were stopped! DE BON ALOI found the resources to start again but could only finish 5th.
We were very surprised by the indulgence of the stewards who only gave him 300 euros fine!! It deserved a suspension for dangerous riding.
