Cleangame (8g Ouragon de Celland-Red Bell), off at 2/10 odds, and reined by his harness racing trainer Jean Michel Bazire, was an easy 1.11.2kr timed winner of the Gr. II International Prix d’Ete (purse 145,000€, 2700 meters).

This was Cleangame’s 36th career win in 56 starts now for 1,447,320€ and he is currently one of the top older campaigners in France. J.M. Rancoule owns Cleangame. 12/1 Tony Gio (8m Varenne-Ilaria Jet) rallied late to earn second for Eric Raffin, trainer Sebastien Guarato and owner Scuderia Bivans Srl, also owner of Face Time Bourbon.

Third today was 5.1/1 Drole de Jet (7m Coktail Jet-Likely Jet) for trainer/driver Pierre Vercruysse and Ecurie Hunter Valley. Alcoy (6m Ready Cash-Divann), off at 11/1, finished fourth for Christophe Martens and Ceke Farm BVBA.


The Gr. II Prix de Basly (monte, purse 85,000€, 2175 meters, seven three year olds) completed today’s groupe level action and it went to 4.2/1 odds Heros de Fleur (3m Ludo de Castelle-Rue Chance Folle) with Eric Raffin in the irons. Frederic Prat is the owner/trainer of this now four time career winner for life earnings of 108,190€. Race time was 1.13.4kr. 5.2/1 odds Hytte du Terroir (3f Boccador de Simm) took second money for Alexandre Abrivard and third was 13/1 Hispanien (3m Magnificent Rodney) for Anthony Barrier.
