Separately, following a poor effort under saddle this week at Enghien, it was announced that former great international speedster Rapide Lebel will likely be retired. Both trainer Guarato and driver Eric Raffin reportedly stated that his career should end, albeit final decision rests with the owner. The nine year-old gelded son of Ginger Somolli earned €1,816,922 with three Gr. I career victories and a speed record of 1.09.4kr.
