The unbeaten Ferry Jet (3m Uriel Speed-Ulla Jet) took the Prix des Lagny (purse 36,000 euro, 2700 meters, 10 starters) for his third victory in his career. The 4/5 favorite is trained by Luc Roelens and was reined by Pierre Vercruysse to this 1.16.4kr score that raised his earnings to 31,050 euro.

At end of the Saturday Vincennes program was the Gr. III Prix de Provence (purse 80,000 euro, 2700 meters, 12 starters). Direct Way (5g Quaker Jet-Queens Flore) scored in 1.13.9kr at 7/1 odds for driver Anthony Barrier, trainer Philippe Allaire and breeder/owner Jacques Pauc. 26/1 Doberman (5m Prodigious) was second for driver Yoann Lebourgeois and trainer Franck Nivard.

At Bergsaker this day was the Sundsvall Open, a Gr. I UET Masters Series event (purse 175,700 euro, 2140 meters autostart, 10 starters) that went to the 19/1 Milligan’s School (5m Yankee Glide-Tori Ann) with Ulf Eriksson up for Stall TZ and trainer Stefan Melander.

This winner enjoyed a pocket trip before emerging in mid-stretch for a length victory timed in 1.10.1kr, to raise his career earnings to 708,070 euro. Sorbet (7m Super Photo Kosmos-Altar Bound) was second for Erik Adielsson, Stall Zet and trainer Daniel Reden at 21/1. 47/1 outsider Pastore Bob (5g From Above) was second for Peter Ingves and trainer Johan Untersteiner. Nadal Broline (8g Yankee Glide-Aimee’s Promise) at 11/1 was fourth for Ulf Ohlsson and fifth was the 1/5 favorite Readly Express (6m Ready Cash-Caddie Dream) with Jorma Kontio up.

This one raced second in the outer before making a three wide effort mid-way on the last lap backstretch. That surge failed leaving Readly Express three wide in the final bend and he tired in the lane to be four lengths off the winner.
