Today’s GP Je Beteou (10th leg of the Trophee Vert series, purse 40,000€, 3100 meters distance handicap) at Royan-la Palmyre in France saw Duel du Gers (7g Quaker Jet-La Chasse Verte) scored for trainer/driver Matthieu Abrivard and owner J.M. Rancoule timed in a quick 1.15.5kr on the harness racing grass course.

This was the winner’s 14th career victory and increased his career earnings to 308,210€. The 25 meter handicapped Clark Sotho (8g Oiseau de Feux) was second for Guillaume Martin ahead of two more 25 meter penalized performers, Cap du Normont (8m Isleto de Bellouet) and Blues des Landiers (9g Phlegyas). Astor de Rozoy (10m Ready Cash) was home fifth.

The bulky Trophee Vert field race three across much of the way until late in the final bend when Duel du Gers exhibited superiority. A big crowd was on hand for the trotting action on a picture perfect day.
