The news

We hoped he would do it and he did it

 

In the morning, PLOVDIV worked pleasantly and seriously and improved with every gallop. Before his first race at Sables d’Olonne on June 10th , we were very confident but also tensed up as we are every time one of our horses runs first time out.

 

And this two year old colt by Hurricane Cat out of Septième Face was not disappointing. He won by little but quite surely. Still a baby racing against competitors who had already run, he proved to be courageous and tough.

 

His jockey, Antoine Hamelin, told us he was a pleasant horse who had a nice future in front of him.
