We did enjoy it!!

 

 

When GASTI GRETI won Prix Fineau at Craon on September 7th, we screamed with joy even if from the end of the bend we could see it was done…

( yes…the old saying “as long as you have not passed the winning post…..) it didn’t prevent us from expressing our enthusiasm !!

 

Ridden by Bertrand Lestrade, they took the lead and his jockey managed to control him and prevent him from going like a lunatic !     From the far straight…, he started accelerating and no one could follow him… he won very easily.  

 

  Well done and congratulations to our team, to his owners Loic and Benjamin Glemin who have always loved this horse… in spite of his shock defeats.  

 

 And we all congratulated each other, family Gondouin and family Leenders because we are the breeders of this nice horse.  

 

 Where does his name come from? We kept our logic of shortening our names and first names!
