January 9, 2019 - Today the Quinte+ race of the day was at Cagnes sur Mer in the Prix de la Cote d’Or (purse 32,000€, 2925 meters, 18 starters) and a host of harness racing longshots in the top five created a single Q+ exact order payoff of 233,441€ for the 2€ wager.

The race timed 1.15.2kr nose winner was 10/1 Beguin d’Afi (8g Little Crack-New Star de Foot) with Pierre Vercruysse aboard for trainer Yvan Teerlinck and owner Guido Van Helleputte.

The Bequin/Vercruysse team won for the second time at Cagnes sur Mer in 2019 (January 4 and 9) to increase career earnings to 115,380€.

3.2/1 Diga de Cahot (8f Uniclove) was second for trainer/driver Nicolas Ensch and 8.1/1 Concerto des Dunes (7g Hulk des Champs) was third with Matthieu Abrivard up.

58/1 Darwin Maza and 225/1 Arginio des Godins (9m Norginio) completed the top five and set up the big exact order payoff.

There were several accidents coming off the final bend.

On the CSM card was also the Prix des Cotes d’Armor (purse 26,000€, 2825 meters, 15 starters, five year olds) with that victory to 1.6/1 Eden de Thyl (5g Power Jet-Queridette) clocked in 1.15.6kr and reined by trainer Y-A Briand.

Eden scored for the eighth time in 24 career starts for 85,630€ in life earnings.

The 3/10 favorite Express Way (5m Love You-Queen Flore) was second for Eric Raffin, trainer Ch.A. Mary and breeder/owner Jacques Pauc.

31/1 Endian de Banville (5f Niky) and 20/1 Electra Wind (5f Offshore Dream) completed the top four.
