Bolero Love (5m Love You-Orelady) took today’s featured harness racing Q+ Gr. I Prix de Selection (purse €240,000, 2299 meters, 14 starters) at Paris-Vincennes. The Sebastien Guarato trainee was driven by Franck Nivard for owner Antonio De Sousa.

Off at 5.5/1 odds the winner scored in 1.10.8kr to defeat 2.4/1 favorite Amiral Sacha (6m Ganymede-Nostalgique Sacha) and reinsman Gabriele Gelormini. 9.4/1 Billie de Montfort (5f Jasmin de Flore-Quismy de Montfort) landed third for Eric Raffin. She raced forwardly placed with cover but the Guarato trained mare could not threaten the top two that traveled the last 500 meters quickly after a 1.11.7kr clocking at the 500 to go post.

The Gr. II Prix de l’Union Europeenne (purse €160,000, 3000 meters, 11 starters) went to the 1.14.4kr timed and 1.1/1 favorite Ustinof du Vivier (8g Look de Star-Melba du Vivier) for driver Mathieu Abrivard, trainer Sebastien Guarato, and owner St, Szwarc. 3.8/1 Scarlet Turgot (10f Dahir de Prelong-Noella de Massy) held second for Alexandre Abrivard and trainer Yannick Alain Briand with 83/1 Tom Rush ending in the third spot.
