Robert Bi in prior win

Robert Bi (4m Toss Out-Up Front JM) won today’s €400,000 European Championship for four year-olds in 1.12.9kr over 2150 meters autostart at Mauquenchy (FR).

Off as the 2.7/1 favorite in a very competitive field, reinsman Robin Bakker executed a strategic victory early when he vacated third on the pegs and swept to the lead ahead of first away Tumble Dust (4m Crazed-Affinity) driven by Torbjorn Jansson.

Positions were unchanged as Bakker rated the pace until several challengers appeared late. Tumble Dust was blocked down the lane and never able to escape with Tast of Bourbon in the same situation behind that one.

Amiral Sacha (4m Ganymede-Nostalgique Sacha) ralled late for second ahead of Africaine (4f Oiseau de Feux-Italienne) with Jean-Etienne Dubois up with D’One (4f Donato Hanover-Giant Diablo) fourth and Tumble Dust fifth. Nine starters were within three lengths on the line.

Robert Bi is trained by Paul Hagoort for owner  K.K. Bijkcrk of Holland. The winner recorded his 12th win in a career that now shows €687,570 earned. Robert Bi was bred in Italy by Allevamento G. Biasuzzi.
