Twenty-four international trotters were engaged to contest the 700,000 euro, UET Masters Series, Gr. I Prix de Cornulier on Sunday at Paris-Vincennes. The monte classic, held one week prior to the Prix d'Amerique, produces an invite for the winner to the Prix d'Am. If they remain in the final field, there are prior Prix d'Amerique starters (e.g.,Roxane Griff) in the mix along with youngsters who perform well in monte events (e.g., Vision Intense at age five). Last year's winner, Singalo, will be at the start for trainer Louis Baudron. Irrespective of the outcome this event is a must see for trotting fans, especially those that embrace monte.

The Prix de Cornulier was born in 1931 and has been raced annually thereafter except for 1940-41. Two winners, Bellino II and Jag de Bellouet, scored in the Cornulier and then the Prix d'Amerique. The fastest winning time so far was the 2012 victory by Quif de Villeneuve in 1.12kr. Singalo's outstanding win a year ago was timed in 1.12.7kr in the snow.

There have been three triple winners of the Cornulier, the most recent being Jag de Bellouet (2004 through 2006), then Kaiser Trot in 1981-2 and again in 1984 and Bellino II in 1973 followed by his back to back scores in 1975-6. There have been 12 two-time winners including Tidalium Pelo, Tabriz, Dream With Me, One du Rib and First de Retz (an excellent sire of monte trotters).
