Texas Charm (second choice in wagering, son of Cygnus d'Odyssee) rallied to win today's third "B" leading to January 26th Prix d'Amerique. Julien Dubois expertly handled the winner for Ecurie Victoria Dreams and trainer Philippe Moulin.

Triode de Felliere was a solid second for Anthony Barrier driving for J-P Marmion owner/trainer. Favored Ready Cash was third after a two-hole trip behind pacesetter Timoko (Jos. Verbeeck up) who faded to ninth after a very fast pace (race time 1.10kr, mile rate 1:52.63) in which he parked Vanika du Ruel and Franck Anne. Ready Cash had no excuse and was unable to close on the leaders in the late going and held off fourth place finisher Tiego d'Etang.

Timoko took the field to the first 600 meters in a mile rated time of 1:45.55 and held the pace to 1:49.25 with 1000 meters to go in the 2100 meter autostart contest (1-5/16 miles). Race summary follows showing the top 10 order of finish.
