July 19, 2015 - Creatine (5m Andover Hall-Berry Nice Muscles) won today’s International Prix Saint Michel (purse €122,000, 8 starters, 1609 meters autostart) for trainer/driver Johnny Takter.

From post five, Creatine went for the lead and was parked by Quick Fix and reinsman Jorma Kontio to almost the half mile mark when he yielded to the pocket.

Quickly Takter was on the move again and cleared from Quick Fix at the three-quarter mark when he opened three lengths in the final bend and in the lane held off late closing 7/1 odds Solea Rivelliere (9f Calife des Noues-Heloa Rivelliere) driven by trainer Philippe Daugeard for an easy win clocked in 1.10.29 (1:53.10 mile rate).

Creatine was the 5/1 favorite in what was an easy field.

Solea Rivelliere was clocked in 1.10.54kr. Veteran Reven d’Amour (10m Revenue-Melody d’Amour) was third at 22/1 timed in 1.10.66kr for trainer Frederik B. Larsson. Seabiscuit and Bret Boko finished fourth and fifth.

Smilin Eli, starting from post one, was offstride before the start.

Creatine, racing with shoes on, went a tough trip and might be an important factor in future upper-class events.

Adam Bowden (Diamond Creek) owns the winner.
