Vabellino and reinsman Eric Raffin won tonight's Prix Martha at Paris-Vincennes, scoring easily in an impressive 1.12.9kr over 2850 meters on the petit piste.

Trained by Sebastian Guarato for Ecurie Podium, the five year-old son of Ouragan de Celland recorded his eighth career win for earnings of £155,850. He secured, as the 1.8/1 favorite, the winners' share of the £62,000 purse as he defeated eight rivals including Voriance de Guez, Valdu Mag and Very Well Jet.

The night card at Vincennes also showcased a win by Volga Saltor in the monte Prix Brasilia for £45,000 with 12 female contestants. Nathalie Henry teamed the winner that increased her earnings to over £125,000. Daniel Bethouart trains Volga Saltor, a five year-old daughter of Fleuron Perrine, as she scored in 1.15.1kr.

The Prix Appolonia for £50,000 went to Vanetta d'Azur for J-M Bazire. This five year-old daughter of Lejacques d'Houilbec scored in 1.13.9kr over 2100 meters autostart. She dispatched 12 rivals for trainer Patrice Lebouteiller to hike her earnings to £99,220.

Tomorrow is leg #2 of the Grand National du Trot. The Gr. III £90,000 event over 3000 meters takes place at Marseille-Borely and it's the day's Quinte+ race with a £6.3 million jackpot.
