Races / 12.07.2022

Chantilly, Tuesday

Ebayra (Distorted humor) has been consistently at its highest this year. Thus, the 5-year-old girl finished third in the Neom Turf Cup (Gr3), third in the Prix Zarkava – Fonds Européen de l’Elevage (L) for her comeback in France, and finally finished third. at Dahlia Stakes (Gr2). At the start of the Prix de la Pépinière – European Livestock Fund (L), it was therefore not only logical to find His Highness’ pupil and representative Aga Khan, a great favorite, but also to see her win easily. Christophe Soumillon placed the future winner penultimate. She waits here until the start of the stretch, where she is moved into the middle of the track to begin to express herself. And, suddenly, Ebaiyra stretched her strides, instantly making a difference, without forcing her talent. animator, Anytime will soon (Camelot), took care of his stats at Chantilly by taking second place, a quarter of the length. Alula Borealis (Kendargent), another resident of André Fabre, came in third, half the length.

She has the ability to win Gr1

To date, Ebaiyra has been able to take second place in the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud (Gr1) and third place in the Hong Kong Vase (Gr1). But she still hasn’t won at this level. After the race, Francis-Henri Graffard, his coach, told us: ” I want to find him a race to cheer him on. I think that’s what happened today. Christophe was happy with his attitude. She passed the horses with ease. It’s true that horses sometimes have hard battles when they don’t win and it hurts their morale. Today’s heat is intense, sometimes complicating the horse’s body, so I hope it won’t affect too much. Anyway, I have no goals right now for her. I hope that Ebaiyra will come back well. I saw what I wanted to see today. She has Gr1 in Germany, otherwise she would prepare for Prix Jean Romanet (Gr1). I will try to make it as easy as possible for her. And, why not, travel in the fall. I think she has the ability to win. »

Two “Fabre” complete the podium

André Fabre filled in two of his residents at the top of this List, both of whom have podium positions. Any Time Soon, who finished second in the 2,100m after third place in the Prix Gold River – Fonds Européen de l’Élevage (L, 2,800m), came in second. Alula Borealis, third in the Prix Haras du Lion – Prix Urban Sea (L) is once again third at this level. About Alula Borealis, Hugo Besnier, the later racer, told us, after pondering for himself: “It was very good, we had a good stable race. She puts her heart on the track, she is a classy person. Straightforward, I was behind the two horses that led me, I didn’t have enough resources to get past them. They have class on this ground, but on soft ground I would be even more comfortable, so why not get a spot at this level. »

Edisa’s sister
