Imperial Ulysses in the Prix du Calvados on 05/01/2013 at Vincennes

Favored Ulysse (6m Love You-Loctudy-Extreme Dream) drew away in the late stages of the 2850 meter, 150,000 euro purse Gr. II Prix du Calvados at Vincennes to score impressively in 1.14.1kr. Thomas Levesque was in the irons for trainer Mike Lenders and Ecurie des Pommiers. The winner secured his 10th career win now with increased earnings of 512,030 euro. The race is an International UET Masters Series event and a test leading to the Prix du Cornulier on January 19. The winner of that race earns a bid to the Prix d'Amerique a week later. The 2013 Prix du Cornulier winner Singalo was disqualified today after what appeared to be a tiring miscue. He had battled to overcome a 25 meter handicap that also affected 8th place finishing Risque Tout, both being the highest money earners in the field.

Rapide du Digeon was second for Damien Bonne with Utoky third for Franck Nivard, riding for trainer Franck Leblanc and owner Ecurie Cte. P. de Montesson. Taiga du Rib, trained by monte specialist Joel Hallais and Ecurie Rib, ended fifth with Yohan Lebourgeois up.
