Napoleon Bar (7m Varenne-Dalmazia-Coktail Jet) took today’s €115,000 Gr. III European Prix de New York at Enghien-Soisy. Pierre Vercruysse teamed the winner, for trainer Catello

Savarese and owner Emiliano Stecca, to his 14th career win now with earnings over €757,000. Vercruysse put the 7.7/1 odds Napoleon Bar on the front shortly off the gate, yielded and then immediately regained the lead that he held comfortably for the rest of the contest, conducted over 2150 meters autostart.

Uprince was second at 10/1 for Franck Nivard with 24/1 Shadow d’Odyssee third for Eric Raffin. Favored 1.3/1 Pascia’Lest ended seventh for Enrico Bellei after a ground saving trip. He was empty in the stretch.
