Arrival of the quinté : 8 – 2 – 7 – 13 – 6
Contested on soft ground, the quinté du jour brought together sixteen competitors, aged 4 to 9, on the long 3,000 m route of the Vichy racecourse (Allier).
After waiting in the peloton, Aristocrat (n ° 2) placed his acceleration in the middle of the straight line and seemed to be heading towards an easy success but it was without counting on the return of the favorite, Bubble Smart (n ° 8). Well supported by her jockey, Gérald Mossé, the resident of Mikel Delzangles regained meter by meter in the final phase to come and adjust, with a short head, Christopher Grosbois’ partner when passing the post. In full rise, it confirms its success acquired at this level last month in Compiègne and wins its second quinté for its third participation. Quickly in the leading group, Free Electron (n ° 7) takes 3rd place and barely resists Garden side (n ° 13), whose end of the race did not go unnoticed. The quinté is completed by Belgian Prince (n ° 6), also the author of a fine final effort after having been noticed for a long time at the rear. He is clearly ahead Lootah (n ° 10) and Rocca You (n ° 11), who finished well behind.
Our Synthesis and Kévin Romain indicated the trifecta in order while Stéphan Flourent proposed it out of order.
