MIRINO nearly opened his record at Craon on June 13th, on the distance of 3100m (a mile and 7 ½ furlongs). He was beaten by a short head.
It was a pity as he performed remarkably well. He started close to the lead, started accelerating at the entrance of the straight and fought well for a victory which he missed by little.
Fabrice Véron was thrilled with his horse and told us that the long distance didn’t bother him at all, on the contrary, according to him the horse could even run on 4000m (2 miles and 4 furlongs).
Lady O’Reilly’s horse is improving well.
