The residents of Luke Roelens are on the rise. Witness the victories of Japarov LireSunday in Vincennes, and that of Wintergreen, the next day, still in the temple of the trot. A trend that the team will try to confirm on Thursday at Vincennes (R-1). The Belgian professional will indeed align JASPER (207) in the Price of Lazenay. Here are his impressions.
“The horse is still looking for a first victory, but he is not without resources. He performed well in the spring but then disappointed me during the summer. At work, he gave satisfaction but he did not confirm in the race. He has evolved well since. For his debut at Vincennes, he left a good impression on me (note, 3rd on November 21). He finished well that day. On the other hand, he did not did not deliver in the same way, at the beginning of December. We tried to be patient with him, in order to give him morale. The horse is fine. Thursday is a return race but the horse has work to do. “He’ll come over 2,100 meters. It’s not going to bother him. He has speed and knows how to start fast. Besides, he will perform this time barefooted from all four feet. That should help him. I expect a good result from it. He shouldn’t be neglected. I just hope that his n° outside behind the wings of the autostart will not be detrimental to him and that he for ra benefit from a back.”
