November 21, 2018 - Today’s Quinte+ 13th leg of the Gr. III Grand National du Trot Paris Turf (purse 90,000€, 2850 meters distance handicap, 18 starters) was at Mauquenchy. The 1.9/1 favorite Ceylan Dairpet (6g Ouragon de Celland-Rosy MIP) scored, timed in 1.13.8kr, with Yoann Lebourgeois aboard for trainer Tony LeBeller and owner Ecurie Dairpet.

The victory was his 13th in 35 career starts now for 412,410€ earned. 3.3/1 Balfour (7g Scipion du Goutier) was second for Dominick Locqueneux and 9/1 Bonne Copine (7f Love You) was third for Franck Nivard, trainer Thierry Raffegeau and owner J-Y Roze. 11/1 Arfor de Mire and 29/1 Baladin Hungrois completed the top five and there was one Q+ e-ticket winner that received 230,483.80 for a 2€ wager.

On the card was also the Prix Maurice de Folleville (purse 30,000€, 2850 meters, nine starters) that went to 1.17.2kr timed and 4.1/1 odds Forsica du Rocha (3g Un Mer d’Heripre-Taigada Houlbet) for trainer/driver Franck Nivard, his third career victory in 11 starts now for 51,700€ in earnings. The winner’s sire is a great horse and great gaited. It will be interesting to watch his siring production.

Race time for the winner was 1.13.4kr. The 11.5/1 Final Oak (8m Make It Happen-Cara Bobs Crown) rallied to be second for driver Claes Sjostrom and trainer Mikael Starling.
