AMIRANT was 2nd at Deauville on August 15th in Prix de Barneville (big handicap) on 2500m (a mile and 4 ½ furlongs), very well ridden by Mikael Barzalona.
In second position all around, AMIRANT could not do anything against the fast turn of foot of the winner at the entrance of the finishing straight. But he finished courageously and beat off all the attacks.
We are quite re-assured on the form of our horse who had performed such a shock defeat at Compiègne that we were speechless!!
