Races / May 24, 2022

Saint Cloud, Tuesday

The casual winner for her unofficial debut in an Afasec race on April 13 at PSF in Chantilly, sun flare (Exceed and Excel) immediately confirmed its quality by winning 4 lengths on the occasion it took its – validation – first step, two weeks later. On April 29, already in Saint-Cloud, Godolphin’s rep was able to deliver her laws from start to finish in the Prix Praline (Inédites), showing that she had clear room to maneuver. .. Third, Sun Flare finds out about his recent victory. This time climbing in last place, unlike her last time, the resident of André Fabre seemed to speed up at the start of the race. Slowly returning to his track, Sun Flare then unleashed a hair-raising finish. Back on the track, it ended up winning 3/4 of the length. The conclusion is also pleasant, although less rapid than at the same time, Missyouni (Siyouni) is the winner for a moment. In the end, the patron of Christopher Head came in second. Another long passage, Chachatouille (Dream Ahead) ran first at this level, taking third place.

She put on a good passage to end

As he dismounted, the winning jockey, Mickaël Barzalona, ​​said: “She did it well, she showed something. We rode her to teach her a little more about racing. Last time we went first and she did it with great ease. Today, the task is more complicated. The speed was steady, I had a big drop. She went completely “off” during the course before she revealed a very nice gear change to finish. The horses that cracked at the end gave us some morale. She passes the course with flying colors. She’s a down-to-earth, somewhat cold person, to whom you can apply all sorts of tactics, especially when she shows up a lot. We’ll see how she advances on this, but she has everything to take a new course. »
