Arrival of the quinté : 10 – 4 – 13 – 16 – 2
It is again the small track that hosted the quinté of this Friday evening, on the occasion of the Ophélia Prize. At the end of the 2,850 m to cover for the sixteen competitors in this event, the victory went to Hello I’m Arriving (n ° 10). Perfectly led by Matthieu Abrivard, who placed himself in the back of the leading horse, the nine-year-old gelding sprinted well when he had the opening at the entrance to the straight line. Only barefoot for the second time in his career, Hello I’m Arriving wins his first event and pleases his entourage by allowing his developer, David Travert, to sign his first success in a quinté.
Race leader, Furioso Beach (n ° 4) ultimately narrowly fails for success but absolutely does not demerit. For his return to competition, after several weeks of absence, Eagle Meslois (n ° 13) achieves a very good value, despite his initial handicap of 25 m. Slightly set back, Duke of Christal (n ° 16) steals fourth place from Elvis des glénan (n ° 2) in the last meters of the race. The favourite, Falcao de Chenu (n ° 12), had a complicated course of the race and completely broke down to finish, causing great disappointment.
Halim Bouakkaz indicated the quartet in disorder in only six horses.
Thirty minutes earlier, the Alfred Lefevre Prize went to Diamond of Tréabat. Ridden by Clément Frécelle, he managed to get the best out of Gabiano, who has long been an illusion for success, which allows him to sign the tenth success of his career.
