Arrival: 14 – 4 – 8 – 5 – 10
“This is a first for the team. Well done to the whole team because it’s not easy at the moment ”. While the results are long overdue, coach Sylvain Dehez did not hide his joy, at the microphone of Equidia, after the first success of his training in a quinté over obstacles thanks to Valenteene (n ° 14) this Tuesday at the Auteuil racecourse. The 4-year-old filly won in the last few hundred meters of a completely disjointed race with four falls at the start of the 3,600-meter course, including that of Passing Madness (n ° 11) which resulted in Keep the change (n° 1), Gemohio (n ° 12) and Fiumicina (n ° 15) in its loss.
Under the control of Nicolas Gauffenic (5th fifth of his career), Valenteene wins his first big handicap for his second attempt at 40/1 ahead of Kolina Has (n ° 4), animator of the first hour who has long been a winner after having counted twenty lengths in advance in the line opposite. Neli Has (n ° 8), whose trainer Arnaud Chaillé-Chaillé thought she was capable of “taking a good place” as he had declared in our columns, completes the trifecta in front Geelong Sport (n ° 5) and Milos (n° 10). Villa Florentine (n ° 13) was arrested.
