The superb six year-old Up And Quick moved three wide early to gain command for J-M Bazire and then drew away from rivals to win the Gr. II International Prix Tenor de Baune, the second last major event before the Prix d'Amerique. Franck Leblanc conditions the winner for Ecurie Quick Star. Longshot Unabella Perrine was second at 25/1. Uhlan du Val, off as 3/1 second choice, was fourth ahead of two entrants from Sweden, Rocky Winner (by Credit Winner) and Disco AE (by Scarlet Knight). None were a match for the winner.

January 12, 2014 Paris-Vincennes - Prix Tenor de Baune, Gr. II International UET Masters Series, 120,000 euro purse, 2700 meters turning start, 10 starters 1.13.3kr

Fractions:1.15kr at 1500; 1.13.5kr at 1000, 1.13.7kr at 500, 1.13.3kr finish

1st Up And Quick (6m Buvetier d'Aunou-Fichtre-Quiton du Coral), J-M Bazire up for Ecurie Quick Star and trainer Franck Leblanc, his 10th career win for earning in excess of 880,000 euro, odds 0.7/1 as favorite

2nd Unabella Perrine (6f Diamant Gede-Minnie Perrine-Viking Sun), Franck Ouvrie up at 25/1

3rd Une Fille d'Amour (6f Infant du Bassis-Never So Great-Ever Jet), David Thomain up at 7.5/1

4th hlan du Val (6m Islero de Bellouet-Indiana Beautiful-Beautiful Somolli), Cedric Megissier trainer/driver, 3/1 odds

6th Disco AE (6m Scarlet Knight-Queen AR-Super Arnie), Eric Raffin up for Stefan Melander owner/trainer, 57/1

The winner's pedigree is productive, he being sired by legendary Buvetier d'Aunou (Royal Prestige-Nesmile-Caprior) from the mare Fichtre by Quiton du Coral. She is dam of seven foals, six winners ranging in life earnings from 99,000 euro to 880,000 euro, and each by a different sire. Up And Quick's pedigree is 63% French trotter and 37% standardbred with a 1.7% inbreeding coefficient.

Up And Quick is in fact quick and able to go the distance. He'll be a likely contender in the Prix d'Amerique, at least among the youngsters first tackling the full-scale veteran, top-level, international players.
