Winning first time out




Madame de Tarragon’s filly, UTOPISTE, marked her first time out in two different ways:

-         In the parade ring, she threw her jockey Steven Colas to the ground. Steven got kicked in the belly and the doctor didn’t allow him to ride. Fortunately it was more fear than harm. Arnaud Bourgeais was allowed to replace him.

-         She won her first race easily. Started very quiet at the back of the field, found her cruise speed and came closer in the last bend and then performed a very nice finishing straight.


This 3 year old AQPS (non-thoroughbred) by Califet out of Surprise du Chef, has certainly an interesting future, because if she has the courage and

qualities of her dam, she should please us.
