The news


We didn’t expect it!!



Our courageous FILLE D’AVRIL won for her come back at Nantes on April 11th. It was Prix Haifa: a handicap over a mile.


Ridden by Fabrice Véron, she started in 4th, 5th position, in the far straight she moved forward and took the lead at the entrance of the finishing straight. She won by half a length.


We were a bit surprised to see her win, because FILLE D’AVRIL was not quite ready…

We had obviously forgotten how tough and courageous our “grand-mother” was!!


There is a saying “the older the better” but in her case, it is a challenge to nature: she is 9!


It was the 10th win for Ecurie Le Pied A L’Etrier.
