The fashionably bred Tast Of Bourbon (3f Donato Hanover-Qualita Bourbon-Love You) won today’s Hippodrome d’Enghien featured Prix Henri Cravoisier (Gr. III European, 1609 meters autostart) carrying a purse of 85,000 euro.

The winner, registered in Denmark and first foal of a great racemare, scored in 1.11.6kr (1 :55.27) for breeder/owner/driver Jean-Pierre Dubois. She is trained by Jean Baudron and won her second straight graded event at Enghien, the first over 2875 meters.

In 2013 Tast Of Bourbon has two wins and a second in five starts in this her first racing year. Remo Gas (3m Varenne-Isotta Gas-Toss Out) was second for Pierre Vercruysse and trainer Marco Smorgon with Artiste de Jour(3m Chef du Chatelet- Ondione du Fournet-Beautiful Somolli) landing third for Franck Ouvrie.

For Dubois, who began driving again in France on May 1st, it was his 23rd win in 60 drives for a winning percentage 38.33%. Dubois earned his third graded win and has been 1-2-3 in 37 of  those 60 appearances, his horses earning over 418,000 euro. The 73 year-old breeder, trainer and reinsman is well respected as one of the great equine developers in the trotting sport.
