Many of the international trotting leaders face off Saturday in the second "B" leading to the 2014 Prix d'Amerique. The UET Masters Series' Prix du Bourbonnais (Gr. II International, 2850 meters, distance handicap, 120,000 euro purse, 15 starters) features Ready Cash, Timoko, Royal Dream, Save The Quick and Singalo, all starting with a 25 meter handicap.

The front group includes possible victors Texas Charm, Roxana de Barbray and two Italy invaders Marielles and Pascia Lest (a son of Varenne from a Diamond Way dam), the only four year-old in the field.

Singalo is a previous Prix du Cornulier winner (monte) with Royal Dream and Ready Cash being past Prix d'Amerique winners in what is a well-matched elite group (with combined earnings in excess of 18 million euro, or US$24.6 million). Another Prix d'Amerique hopeful, Franck Leblanc's Up And Quick, is not in the field. They plan to take a different path to the big race that includes the December 15th Prix Jean Dumouch, Prix Burgandy on December 29 and the Prix Tenor de Baune on January 12.
