In this Star Award, BANVILLE GANAY (photo) has achieved the feat of victoriously returning 50 meters. Well started and halfway through the peloton at the turn of the plain, the horse of Jean-Michel Bazire took the lead at the top of the climb, the host INFERNO PIPER, who had made a lot of efforts at the start of the race, not being able to counter him. Once in command, JMB controlled, relaunching BANVILLE GANAY in the finish line. Long stuck in the rope, REAL ITALIAN, was able to shift to enter the finish line. Finishing very quickly, the 3 years of Philipppe Allaire however, could not overcome the tenacity of his elder brother. IDEAL DE LIGNERIES, who had come very close in the last turn, extended his effort well, placing a good third. I LOVE ME finished pleasantly, taking fourth place behind INFERNO PIPER who still managed to keep fifth place.
In relation to Jean-Michel Bazire : “I was remorseful after the Critérium. I thought I had a bad ride. I compared the times of the 3 years old with those of my horse and I said, let’s try. By going 50 meters I said to myself, as soon as they brake, I’m going to jump on them. My horse was beautiful today and my guys did a really good job. “
