The news

We tried…

 

 

… and it was very positive.   

 

 OR GRIS had an entry at Lyon in a big handicap (“quinté”)… but considering the trip to Lyon and the very high temperatures on the race-course, we were not that enthusiastic about it.

 

The decision was made to supplement him in the Group 3 Prix Barbeville over 1m7f at Deauville (this is a race which is normally run at Longchamp).

 

He behaved really well and finished 4th, one more step and he would have been 3rd (let’s not forget that the horses in front of him were Group 1 winners).

His jockey Alexis Badel told us that the horse had changed a lot and improved since last year and he had only given him a small crack on the shoulder and thus avoided to give him a hard race!    

 

  He is a horse who has been preserved and he has a nice future in front of him.
