December 16, 2018 - The sensational Face Time Bourbon (3m Ready Cash-Vita Bourbon-Love You) easily won today’s harness racing Gr. I Criterium des 3Ans at Paris-Vincennes (purse 240,000€, 2700 meters, 15 starters).

Bjorn Goop was the pilot of this Sebastien Guarato trainee that is owned by Scuderia Bivans Srl and was bred by SARL Haras Saint Martin.

Race time was 1.14.4kr off relaxed fractions (a quick last 500 after the 500 to go time of 1.15.2kr).

Face Time Bourbon now has nine wins in 10 career starts, the last six in a row, now good for 317,150€ earned.

The lightly rigged, unchecked colt, off today as the 2/5 favorite, appears to be on route to a superb career with his superb gait and manners.

32/1 Favorite Fligny (3f Rockefeller Center-Africa Fligny) was second driven by Sylvain Deudonne for trainer Gregory Thorel and Ecurie le Pinsonniere. Third was 51/1 Fanina des Racques (3f Ready Cash) with Franck Nivard up, and ahead of 75/1 Fakir du Lorault (3m Vaillant Cash) and 66/1 Fighter Smart (3m Uniclove). The well-regarded Fly With Us and Faithful were dq’s.

The undercard’s top race was the Gr. III Prix Jean Dumouch (purse 115,000€, 2850 meters distance handicap, 11 European starters) with victory to the rallying 29/1 Balbir (7g Ganymede-Manzir) that was reined by trainer Mickael Cormy for Ecurie du Vieux Chene. Race time was 1.14kr. The winning Balbir took his second straight victory and the 27th in his career, good now for 605,290 earned. The 48/1 Bolide Jenilou (7g Kesaco Phedo) was second for Anthony Barrier and trainer Gregory Thorel. The 2/1 favorite Carabinieri (7m Wellino Boko) was third for Franck Nivard and fourth was 13/1 Valko Jenilat (9m Kepler) with Eric Raffin up and this one faced a 25 meter handicap.
