Arrival of the quinté: 4 – 5 – 14 – 7 – 6
After Normandy for the first quinté of the week, head for the Paris-Vincennes racecourse with a winter meeting in full swing. The quinté du jour pitted fifteen competitors, aged 6 to 10, after the forfeit of Fakir de Mahey (n ° 1) on the classic 2 700 m course. This European event gave pride of place to foreigners with the two representatives of Robert Bergh who took the first two places.
In a well-conducted test, the victory went to Pinto Bob (n ° 4) which first of all took advantage of a slowdown at the end of the full tank to get closer. At the end of the final turn, he then tried to break away, taking a few steps ahead of the favorite, Heading Reference (n ° 14), and was not joined. He thus allows his driver Björn Goop to return to success on the Parisian ashes that had eluded him since February 28. “He runs well every time in Sweden and had already proven himself here,” underlines the Swedish pilot at the microphone of Equidia. I am happy to return to Vincennes. We won a lot of races in Scandinavia, but in France we had a difficult time. “
Vikens High Yield (n ° 5), companion of boxes of Pinto Bob, himself, showed resistance to keep second place, without being very happy. Remaining on two successes on this track, he confirms his great period of form. Fourth arrival Fragonard Delo (n ° 7) waited halfway through the peloton before making a good straight line. Vaprio (n ° 6) completes the finish while Falco Berry (n ° 3) and Domino Dream (n ° 8) were found to be at fault and were disqualified.
