Youth was on stage this evening at Paris-Vincennes.

The two year-old fillies battled in the Prix Marcel Dejean (Gr. III, purse 80,000€, 2200 meters autostart, seven starters) with 1.4/1 Girls Talk (2f Brillantissime-Be My Girl) scoring for driver Eric Raffin.

Girls Talk is trained by Philippe Allaire for breeder/owner Mme. G. Poulsen-Allaire. The winner is now 4 for 4 in her brief career for 88,200€ earned.

The 8.4/1 odds stablemate Graine de Crack (2f Booster Winner-Pearl MIP) took second for Yoann Lebourgeois and owner/trainer Philippe Allaire.  The 8.5/1 Gloria Berry (2f Quaker Jet-Tequila Berry) landed third with owner/trainer Jean-Michel Bazire at the lines. 10/1 Gee (2f Brutus de Bailly) and 1.1/1 favorite Green Grass (2f Bold Eagle-Tootsie Smiling) completed the top five.

Green Grass raced alongside the winner for much of the contest and weakened late with trainer Sebastien Guarato driving.

The three year-old fillies contested the Prix Lameia (purse 42,000€, 2850 meters, 15 three year-old filly starters) with 14/1 outsider Fiorentina Somolli (3f Love You-Quitalia Somolli) prevailing for reinsman Matthieu Abrivard, breeder/owner Ecurie Somolli and trainer Jerome Compas. Race time was 1.15.9kr.

The 48/1 Fast Lane (3f Voyage de Reve-Riviera Italienne) rallied for second with owner/trainer Julien Dubois up. Mme. Etiennette Dubois bred this filly. The 9/2 odds Frostie Love (3f Sam Bourbon-Ustie Love) was third with Eric Raffin up for owner/trainer Etienne Dubois. Ecurie D bred this one.
