The news


Yes, we were…




…thrilled to be 5th with DOUX DINGUE at Nantes in Grande Course de haies on June 4th. In his previous race at Auteuil, he had a bad experience, got a fright and the problem had to be solved. Actually he had horses falling in his legs twice and it did stop him.


Therefore, Thomas Beaurain gave him a wise race. He was cool to start and afraid over the jumps but he finished courageously lacking a bit to finish!!    


 Thomas told us: “he wanted to do well but feared to jump at the start, but nevertheless I liked him!” 


 We’ll go on giving him easy tasks (for example at Sables d’Olonne to bring his confidence back. DOUX DINGUE is worth it because he didn’t win a chase at Auteuil by 10 lengths by chance.   


  It is true that his breeders didn’t give him the best of name for a racehorse (DOUX DINGUE means QUIET LOONY).
