It is common practice in France, but standing a stallion at stud while pursuing an active racing career is a rarity in the United States. So when Deo Volente Farms in Flemington, New Jersey decided to stand their $2.2 million trotting star Wishing Stone at stud while also continuing his track career, it sent a buzz of excitement through the industry. Keeping stars racing is a proven formula for maintaining the public interest in Europe, and of course Wishing Stone himself has already proven himself highly competitive on both sides of the ditch, even more so considering his European sojourn was conducted when he was just four and five-years-old, a mere baby in European terms. And the news that he will also be available to European breeders has been warmly received – he has been oversubscribed already in Europe for services for the upcoming season – aware as they are that many of the top sires in Europe have competed successfully as an aged horse there – with Scarlet Knight and SJ’s Photo prime examples. “Wishing Stone brings to breeders, durability and longevity.   An exceptional colt and aged performer, it is likely his offspring will inherit those qualities,” says Sue Agopian, managing partner at Deo Volente Farms. Wishing Stone certainly ticks all the boxes as a potential stallion, a world record holder with major wins in four countries, the United States, France, Sweden and Denmark – he also competed in some of the very best races in Europe –where only the elite are invited. In France they pay down to seventh, and a placing in a group one event is the equivalent of a black type credential, with many going on to successful stud careers simply with the words classique or semi-classique on their CV. It showed they were good enough to race against the very best. Take Wishing Stone’s seventh placing in the 2011 Prix de France, one of the French Triple Crowns, the absolute jewels in the sparkling European circuit where the royally-bred French, Swedish and Italian elite race The winner of the Prix de France in 2011 was none other than Ready Cash, the greatest horse of a great generation in France. A dual Prix d’Amerique winner and winner of last year’s Masters du Trot grand final, he retired last month as the richest trotter in history with earnings of 4,282,300 euros (US $5,953,675).  . Second was Maharajah, the greatest horse that Sweden has produced in decades and the winner of this year’s Prix d’Amerique, while third was Lana Del Rio, a multiple Group One winning Italian millionaire mare, who beat the boys in Italy’s richest race, the Italian Derby. Fifth was Olga du Bewitz who retired as the twelfth richest horse of all time in France, and the best of her generation with wins in the world championship of saddle racing, the Prix du Cornulier and under harness a win in the Prix de Bretagne and a third placing in the Prix d’Amerique. These races mean little to American breeders, but mean plenty to those in Europe and again Wishing Stone appeared in this blue ribbon event as a 4YO, which is incredibly young in European terms. Wishing Stone not only competed against the best trotters in the world on their own turf, he won several of their biggest races. When he came from an almost impossible position, with a withering sprint to win the Copenhagen Cup, he ran down Quarcio du Chene, a Group One winner (Finlandia-Ajo) and one of Sweden’s best aged performers, with Group Two victories in France, Norway and Sweden. In the process he also beat the German sensation Brioni , the winner of the Elitloppet and Olympiatravet – the two biggest open Group One races in Sweden, and French star, and popular stallion Oynonnax (who won the Prix d’Amerique) and also another brilliant French horse Rapide Lebel, the greatest gelding of the R generation who was second in the Elitloppet by a whisker and earned 2.5 million euros. When Wishing Stone won the Group One King Gustav Pokal, he beat Kadet C.D and Raja Mirchi, two of the brightest young stars in Sweden and when he won the Grand Prix de Sud-Ouest in France, he beat Premiere Steed  a multiple Group One winner, who won the prestigious French Prix Rene Balliere and Finland’s prestigious St Michel Ajo. In the USA he is a world record holder at 6 in 1:51.2f beating Uncle Peter,  Arch Madness and Market Share. As a 5YO he was winner of the Maxie Lee in 2013 (again over Uncle Peter) and before he left for his two-year-stint in Europe he was a top colt, winning the 2010 Kentucky Futurity in straight heats with a final time of 1:51.2. The same year he won the Matron, the American National and was third in the Hambletonian. Wishing Stone was also a winner as a 2YO with victories in the International Stallion Stake, the Bluegrass Stakes, and the NYSS at Monticello.  He has a super pedigree, especially for Europe, being the best son of Conway Hall, who is the brother of four successful stallions in Europe and closely related to several more. Wishing Stone is out of the super broodmare Meadowbranch Magic, a $330,000 yearling and the granddaughter of $1.1 Million winning Davidia Hanover. Wishing Stone’s full brother, Make It Happen, nearly a $1 million winner, has become a sought after stallion in Europe after producing two near Swedish  millionaires from his first crop including TravKrterium (Sweden’s top 3YO race)  second place finisher Final Oak.  Wishing Stone is also a sibling of three other $100,000 winners, which is always a great guide to prepotency. His durability says volumes for his physique and conformation and he is blessed with a perfect gait, which is a necessity for competition in France, where rough gaits lead to disqualifications. He has a wide-striding front action which will remind Swedes of the likes of Maharajah, the winner of this year’s Prix d’Amerique. With services to stallions in Europe heavily regulated, his popularity already is such that he is over-subscribed for his first season, for which he is in Maryland at SBS for frozen semen collection serving the non-US market.  He is to be distributed through Offspring Management in Sweden, Allevamenti Toniatti sas in Italy, ENS Snapshot in Denmark and Stallions Australasia  for Australia and New Zealand. “We plan to bring him home to New Jersey at Deo Volente Farms this week to serve the US breeding market,” says Sue Agopian.  “We will be breeding the mare Yalta Hanover dam of horse of the month Perfect Alliance to Wishing Stone this year. “He will continue breeding and start jogging and training at the training facility few miles from our farm and will be racing come summer. Breeding is part of his daily life, when we need to serve the US breeders we will bring him to the farm for collection.” Wishing Stone  will be breeding until June and his immediate racing programme is likely to  be focused on the the U.S looking towards the Cashman Memorial and Breeders Crown. However, the Copenhagen Cup & TVG trot are also on the future agenda.  “Our strategy is for him to have a global career. With Ron [Burke] as his trainer we have all the confidence that he will have a well rounded global career,” says Sue Agopian.  There are no plans for how long  Wishing Stone can continue combining a race career and breeding, it is common in Europe for racing stallions to continue until nine and ten if their form holds up, Ready Cash a great example, retiring recently at nine, just as his first progeny were cleaning up group races in France.  “He will tell us how long to continue breeding and racing him.  He had an exceptional season at age 6 setting world records in the process.. As long as he is able to compete at that lofty level, we will breed and race. He has a phenomenal legacy and we want to make sure it remains that way!” By David Sanders, for Harnesslink.com

Consistent Univers de Pan (6m Kenya du Pont-Gypsilore-Pan de la Vaudere) led virtually all the way to win today's 200,000e UET Masters Series Gr. I Grand Criterium de Vitesse at Cagnes sur mer by a comfortable three lengths. Trainer/driver Philippe Daugeard teamed the favored (1.9/1 odds) winner alertly off the gate and secured the top spot when well supported Triode de Felliere went off stride in battling for the lead shortly after the start. Once on the lead Daugeard rated the pace and his 13 other rivals were unable to serve a strong challenge. Univers de Pan was timed in 1.10kr over the 1609 meter autostart course (one mile in 1:52.63). That time equaled the third fasted in race history (Varenne 1.09.6kr in 2002; Kesaco Phedo 1.09.9kr in 2004 and 1.10kr by Santa Rosa France in 2012). Italy's Pascia'Lest, with Andrea Guzzinati aboard, took the pocket and eventually ended second when he out battled the game mare Vanika du Ruel, who survived an outside journey for Franck Anne to hold third. Italy's Nesta Effe was never in the hunt and finished unplaced. Univers de Pan's victory was his 17th in a solid career and put his earnings at 1,037,530 euros. He's owned by Olivier Horvath and today secured his first Gr. I score. Univers de Pan enjoyed a good winter meet at Paris-Vincennes where he was second in the Grand Prix de France, Prix de la Marne and Prix de Belgique. He was also fifth in the Prix de Selection. Being age six, look for this one to be a factor in future Gr. I races in France and throughout Europe. He proved today that he can leave, rate and sprint home in sprinter distance contests. His pedigree is 73% French trotteur, 27% Standardbred and with a 3.8% inbreeding coefficient.

The French Winter Meeting at Vincennes is over but elite group racing continues in the world's richest trotting coutry as the UET Masters Series heads south to Cagnes sur Mer, France for the group one Grand Criterium De Vitesse over a mile (1609) for 200,000 euros Italian-bred horses drew the all important three inside positions on the barrier draw as the final field of 14 was released Friday for Sunday's big race. Former Italian Derby winner Pascia' Lest, now trained in France by Thierry Duvaldestin has the pole position inside another French trained Italian, Marielles, a former heat winner in Italy's biggest race the Lotteria over this distance who is trained by Fabrice Soulouy. The number three pole will be taken Nesta Effe, which was the only one of the trio to race in the Prix d'Amerique this year although she finished 10th. But Holger Ehlert's son of Naglo is a proven sprinter and was in super form this time last year, winning two group ones in Finland in April, the Prix d'Etain Royal Seinäjoki-Race and the Finlandia-Ajo over a mile, and he is also a runner-up in the final of the Lotteria, Italy's greatest race, also over a mile. The other two Italians carry good form from the Winter Meeting with Pascia' Lest second in the Group two Prix Jean Le Gonidec in February over 2175m while Marielles was third in prestigious Prix Du Bourbonnais (Gr2) in December. All three are driven by Italian reinsman Andrea Guzzinati (Pascia' Lest), Roberto Andreghetti (Marielles) and Roberto Vecchione (Nesta Effe). While the three Italians have the inside draws, they also have have to face some of their French vanquishers in their respective races here with Prix Jean Le Gonidec winner Vanika du Ruel drawing the seven hole while Prix du Bourbonnais winner Triode de Felliere, possibly the most improved horse in France over the Winter Meeting, drawing pole four. Franck Anne's Vanika du Ruel was the best horse of her generation at two and three and has a best time over the sprint distance at Vincennes of 1.11.6 (1.55.1MR) when winning the group one Prix de l'Etoile. And Jean Paul Marmion's Triode de Felliere warmed up for this race with a close third in the Prix de Plateau de Gravelle, a Vincennes sprint over 2100m in which he recorded a slick 1.11.3 (1.54.4). But the biggest French danger comes from the horse drawn fifth, Univers de Pan who was beaten by the narrowest of margins in the sprint round of the French Triple Crown,the Grand Prix de France. Philippe Daugeard's son of Kenya du Pont was fifth last start off a 25m handicap in the Prix de Selection, but recorded a slick 1.11.1 (1.54.1MR) for the journey and from the five hole will prove very tough to beat. Sweden's best chance Amaru Boko is the only Scandinavian-based entrant in the rich sprint, but the recent addition to Robert Bergh's stable is in outstanding form with four wins on the trot since coming to the Bergsaker barn. The son of Coktail Jet has a fastest time of 1.10.3 (1.53.1MR) but has to start off the second line.

Such trotting luminaries as Scarlet Knight and Commander Crowe have won the Gavle Stora Pris in past years, and even the likes of Prix d’Amerique winner Maharajah has  graced this field with his presence as recently as last year. But the cream of the Swedish elite have been plundering France over the past couple of months with the Lutfi Kolgjini-trained colt Olympic Kronos the latest to stick his hoof in the French cookie jar,  while On Track Piraten was second in the Prix de Plauteau de Gravelle on Thursday. Maharajah and Noras Bean won the two group one classics the Grand Prix d’Amerique and  Prix de France respectively while the likes of the Swedish trained Sanity, Global Manhattan and the ex-pat Beckman all winning big races in France this Winter Meeting. Back home Amaru Boko has looked to be finally fulfilling the potential he showed when winning the Group one E3 final over the likes of Duexieme Picsous, Kadett C.D. and Raja Mirchi in 2010. Then trained by Timo Nurmos, the stallion son of superstar French sire Coktail Jet   was third to Orecchietti and Wishing Stone in the Group one Sprintermasteren Final in 2011 and he has won at Gold Division level in the V75, including a win over Beanie M.M. in the Ego Boys Minne in August 2012. He followed that up with his biggest cheque as an open class horse a few weeks later when second to Sebastian K in the group one Sundsvall Open, a UET Masters Series race but his career stalled the next season with just one small win in 2013. But he returned after a four month break in 2014 in Robert Bergh’s stable and has looked a different horse, racking up three impressive wins in a row. Bergh seems to have found the key to the stallion and although he is attempting the three kilometre trip for the first time, should have the breeding to add the storied distance race to his CV. Montgomery Gel has won four of his last six races but has not won over this distance before, with a second and a third his best efforts  in seven attempts at the 3km staying race. Timo Nurmos usually has Jorma Kontio on board the son of jag de Bellouet but  has engaged top Swedish drive Bjorn Goop. The Swedish champ has driven the gelding nine times previously but the last time was in May last year and he has only won once, on his second drive on the horse in September 2009. Francais du Gull, another son of Jag de Bellouet, was third in this race last year and has the credentials to really test this field while Svante Bath’s Labero Broline (Pine Chip)and Ake Lindblom’s Winning Love (Love You) are also getting support in early markets..

The Prix Jean Le Gonidec, an international group two sprint race for 5YOs begins a big week of racing at Vincennes with no less than five group races spread over three days of action as the Winter Meeting heads into its final three weeks. Former Italian Derby winner Pascia'Lest heads an international contingent of two Italians and a Swede who will take on the cream of the French V-crop in this 120,000 euro race over 2175m on the grand piste. Varenne, the Italian superstar who was the last horse from Italy to win the Prix d'Amerique, is the sire of both the Italian entrants, Pascia'Lest and Princess Grif and both are trained in France, the former by Ready Cash's trainer Thierry Duvaldestin and the latter by Fabrice Souloy, who has a large international clientele in his superb facilities at Haras de Ginai. Pascia'Lest Italian career included wins in the Group one GP Allevatori, GP Giovanardi, GP Nazionale alongside the Derby and a clutch of group twos including the Fyraaringseliten for 4YOs at Solvalla. But the racing in Vincennes is much tougher, and though he finished third in the Prix Marcel Laurent to Victoire in February, he finished down the track in the Prix du Bourbonnais against the elite older horses and then could only manage seventh against his age-group in the Criterium Continental, won again by Victoire. Princess Grif is a dual group one winner in Italy, with wins in the Prix de Milan and GP d'Europa and she also ran a brave third in Save The Quick's world record setting European Championship for Mares last year. Encouragingly she was fifth last start against most of this field in the Prix de Croix at Vincennes. Sixth in that race was the Swedish horse System Performance, a mare by former-Hambletonian winner Scarlet Knight who is trained by one of Sweden's top trainers Stefan Melander. System Performance was an outstanding 3YO in Sweden, winning the prestigious E3 Langa over a similar distance at Eskilstuna, and was runner-up in the sprint equivalent on the way to a record of six wins and two placings in her first nine starts. She has had only one win in 19 starts since although she has regularly placed and her sixth placing was her best in three starts in during the Winter Meeting. Criterium Continental winner Victoire will be a short odds favourite for this race. Danielle Mottier's daughter of Kitko has won three of four big races this Meeting, her only failure being when she galloped while taking on the older horses in the Prix de Belgique. She will face stiff competition from the two who crossed the line with her in the Criterium Continental, Louis Baudron's son of Love You, Village Mystic, a group one winner and very consistent performer and, one of the generation's big improvers Viking de Val. Eric Lambertz' son of Baccarat du Pont has only recently made group company, and has recorded a sixth, third and second in his three Winter Meeting starts. Also in the field is the once dominant force of this generation, Franck Anne's Vanika du Ruel, a four-time group one winner. She raced without success in the Prix d'Amerique and will appreciate the return to age group company after racing against the world's elite in all the B races and the PDA. But realistically, she has struggled here too, with a second placing in the Prix de Wazieres in April last year, her best effort in 12 months - and she hasn't won since December 2012.

Stefan Hultman reportedly gave great thought about whether to engage Maharajah for a fourth attempt at the Prix d'Amerique. After a disappointing last prep in snowy Sweden, some did not expect Maharajah to start albeit his second to last start in Sweden which was a solid winning effort. Also disappointing in his last two starts, Royal Dream was nonetheless engaged in the classic, a race he won easily in 2013. His connections have stated that they will make a decision tomorrow. Ready Cash is the likely favorite again this year albeit a group of new French players may contest his past supremacy. Triode de Felliere and Up And Quick deserve watching. Italy will probably send out up to four starters in the 2014 edition of the Prix d'Amerique, including Mack Grace SM and Nesta Effe. Mack Grace SM, a sharp son of CC's Chuckie T, has won 12 straight.

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 5th Rocky Winner (6m Credit Winner-Level Fortytwo-Arnaquer), Dominik Locqueneux up for Jorgen Westholm trainer, 17/1 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. by Thomas H. Hicks for Harnesslink.com   

The injury of Prix d'Amerique favourite Texas Charm has dominated the headlines for the world's greatest trot in recent days, but there is still business aplenty for prospective participants with the two last chances for entry being held on a fantastic day of racing on Sunday. The Prix de Belgique, the last of the B races and the Prix Tenor Baune for six-year-olds, both offer a ticket to the big dance as well as UET Masters Series points to the first five home in each race - so there is plenty of offer besides the 120,000 euros, which like all races in France, is divided up among the first seven to cross the line. The earlier of the two is the Prix de Belgique, race four on the card and missing injured Texas Charm and the already qualified Ready Cash and Triode de Felliere -the first three home in the third B race, the Prix de Bourgogne at the end of December. The latter two will be keeping their powder dry, although Triode de Felliere is better over the shorter distance, which of course casts doubt over his Prix d'Amerique credentials. The Prix de Belgique is a tough final test for the Prix d'Amerique's aged candidates, being over the staying distance of 2850m and the early favouritism has gone to Univers de Pan, Philippe Daugeard's tough campaigner who has yet to win a group one race, but is the richest of the U generation. Criterium Continental winner Victoire comes into this race after three wins in a row against her own five-year-old crop and this is a big step up for Danielle Mottier's daughter of Kitko but French handicappers are confident she can. Being the last of the B races, handicappers also know there is a dividing line between the likes of Royal Dream, Save The Quick and The Best Madrik, who are superior horses and start of 25m but don't need the win to make the Prix d'Amerique - and the rest that do. So horses like Italian Marielles and Norway's Yarrah Boko - who won this race last year - will be at shorter odds than normal against the backmarkers. Soleil du Fosse and Talicia Bella, who would not normally figure highly in the market are also horses who come into this category. The Tenor de Baune is race six on the card and features a super lineup of six-year-olds, headed by Uhlan du Val, the winner of the Prix de Bretagne, the first of the B races of the Winter Meeting. Second in that race was Criterium des 5 Ans winner Up and Quick from Franck Leblanc's powerful Ecurie Quick Star barn and this pair will be fighting out more than just the favouritism here. Cyril Raimbaud's Une Fille d'Amour beat most of these home in the group two Prix Doynel de Saint-Quentin at the end of December and is the deserved third favourite in early markets. Sweden and Italy are represented by five horses, Vincennes, Disco A.E. and Rocky Winner from the Scandinavian powerhouse and Oropuro Bar and Orient Horse from the southern stronghold. The winner of last year's Tenor de Baune was a Swede, Raja Mirchi, who was withdrawn from Prix d'Amerique contention late last month. A third group two of the day is race seven, the 120,000 euro Prix Gelinotte over 2700m which features the top three-year-old fillies who are preparing for next month's Criterium des Jeunes. The first two home in last month's Prid Une de Mai, Sebastien Guarato's Billie de Montfort and Philippe Allaire's Be My Girl are vying for the early favouritism with French handicappers picking the daughter of Love You to reverse the order here. Most of the field competed in the first of their generation's big races last start, with the first five home appearing here, with the only notable absentee being the beaten favourite Brindille de Mai, although Franck Anne is represented by outsider Balade de Blary. Bergame Madrik, Beauty Turgot, Bassana de Marlau and Biguglia also have solid support on the market. Finally Rapide du Digeon and Rubis Daipet head a talented monte lineup in race 8, the Prix Djerid, a 2200m group III for six-year-olds and over which includes Prix de Cornullier hopefuls Sakura Jiel and Quarlos. The two favourites Rapide du Digeon and Rubis Daipet are ineligible for the world's richest under saddle event next weekend, because they are geldings, but both have been in great form this winter meeting. Rapide du Digeon was second behind rising star Ulysse in the rich Prix du Calvados last weekend and won the Prix August Francois in mid November, beating most of this field. Rubis Dairpet was third in that race, but a week earlier had beaten Rapide du Digeon into second in the Group II Prix Paul Buquet, the first big monte of the Winter Meeting. 12/01/14 Vincennes PRIX DE BELGIQUE   Group II Int 2850m 4-10 €120 000 1 Talicia Bella (7m General du Pommeau - Illicia Bella) Dr: Anthony Barrier Tr: Jean Paul Marmion 2 Victoire (5m Kitko - Juventa Blue) Dr: Mathieu Mottier Tr: Danielle Mottier 3 Soleil du Fosse (8h Jag de Bellouet - Fortune du Fosse) Dr: Thierry Duvaldestin Tr: Thierry Duvaldestin 4 Marielles (8m Kick Tail - Egida Play) Dr: Mathieu Abrivard Tr: Fabrice Souloy 5 Renommee d'Obret (9m Buvetier d'Aunou - Dixie L'Aventure) Dr: Franck Ouvrie Tr: Philippe Emmanuel Trible 6 Univers de Pan (8h Kenya du Pont - Gypsilore) Dr: Philippe Daugeard Tr: Philippe Daugeard 7 Roxana de Barbray (9m Speed Clayettois - Iriane des Enclos) Dr: Eric Raffin Tr: Roberto Donati 8 Severino (8h Gobernador - Katia de Tillard) Dr: Christian Bigeon Tr: Roger Coueffin 9 Vanika du Ruel (5m Jardy - Jacarandine) Dr: Franck Anne Tr: Franck Anne 10 Quinoa du Gers (10h Ganymede - Targa du Chalange) Dr: Fabrice Souloy Tr: Fabrice Souloy 11 Yarrah Boko (9h Coktail Jet - Big Blue Kitten) Dr: Pierre Vercruysse Tr: Trond Anderssen 12 Reve de Beylev (9h Fortuna Fant - Heloise Poterie) Dr: Dominik Locqueneux Tr: Sebastien Guarato 13 The Best Madrik (7h Coktail Jet - Lady Madrik) Dr: Jean Etienne Dubois Tr: Jean Etienne Dubois 25 14 Save the Quick (8m Jasmin de Flore - Heureuse Duchesse) Dr: Jean Michel Bazire Tr: Franck Leblanc 25 15 Royal Dream (9h Love You - Ida Bourbon) Dr: Jean Philippe Dubois Tr: Philippe Moulin 25   PRIX Tenor de Baune   Group II Int 2 700m 6YO €120,000 1 Ultimo Vingt (6h Hasting - Korinella) Dr: Philippe Ternisien Tr: Philippe Ternisien 2 Orient Horse (6h Abano As - Irma Del Rio) Dr: Mathieu Abrivard Tr: Fabrice Souloy 3 Disco A.E.

It is a rich day of racing on Saturday at Vincennes with a pair of  Group I, Group II and Group III's featuring the Prix Maurice de Gheest , the male preparatory race for the upcoming Criterium des Jeunes, the first group one for the B generation, which takes place on the third Sunday of February. There is a field of nine top colts assembled including the first five home in last month's top two-year-old race in France the Prix Emmanuel Margouty, led by Philippe Allaire's pair of Ready Cash colts Brilliantissime and Bird Parker who provided the quinella. Brillantissime who will be driven again by Jos Verbeeck is the early favourite, from Bruno de Gueron's Brutus de Bailly (Niky), Franck Anne's Bolide de Gueron (Cygnus d'Odyssee) and Bird Parker who are all heavily supported. Sebastien Guarato's Best of Sly (mam Bourbon) and Thierry Duvadestin's Goetmals Wood colt Bosco du Goutier are also colts with a lot of talent. Earlier in the day the Prix de Croix brings the best staying five-year-olds in Europe in a UET Masters Series race over 2850m. Viking du Val, who was third in the Criterium Continental last month is the early favourite ahead of last year's Criterium des 4 Ans winner Voltigeur De Myrt and Stephane Melander's Swedish stallion Porthos Amok, the runner up in last year's Swedish TravDerby. The backmarker is the well performed group one winning Love You stallion Village Mystic, who was runner up in the Criterium Continental but has to concede a 25m start to his 12 rivals. European group one winners Princess Grif (Italy), a Varenne mare now in Fabrice Solouy's care, and Lars I Nilsson's Dreams Take Time (mweden), an Andover Andover stallion, are also receiving heavy early support alongside French stallion Vigove, a group two winner and a Criterium des 4 Ans placegetter. The day kicks off with the Prix de Luneville, a 95,000 euro monte for 5YOs over 2175m which sees Emannuel Ruault's exciting prospect Votka Bleu back under saddle for the third time, and the first since running second in a stellar field in the Prix Olry Roederer - beating home Vision Intense that day. He will face the emerging talent of Veloce du Banney who comes into the race on the back of two group three monte wins and has compiled a very fine record of five wins in just 12 starts for Franck Leblanc, all of them under saddle. She will be ridden by star monte jockey Yoann Lebourgeois. Vermeer Jarzeen and Vraie Blonde are also last start monte winners with claims in this. The fourth group race on the card is the Prix du Forez, one of the wonderful series of rich races for older horses, which demonstrate the French commitment to providing decent racing for the entirety of a horse's racing life, This group three over 2850m is restricted to horses older than for seven-years-old who race for a purse of 110,000 euros. The favourite is Jean Luc Dersoir's recent winner The de Chine (Blue Eyes America) from Jean Michel Bazire's mare Tornade du Digeon (Jag de Bellouet). Third favourite is Ru de l'Airou, one of the lesser lights of the much-vaunted R generation who has still managed to amass 610,000 euro racing in the shadow of Ready Cash, Rapide Lebel, Royal Dream et al. Like several in this race, the son of Cygnus d'Odyssee is a regular on the Tour Europeene as is the well supporterd Swedishman and Ton Reve de Cahot - also talented geldings who are perhaps a little off the pace among the European elite but given their chance to make decent money in the brilliant French system. Having said that, Ru de l'Airou finished second in the rich Grand Prix du Sud Ouest in October to T-generation star Timoko, beating into third place Swedish star Sanity, a group one winner and a gold division regular.

Master trainer Jean-Michel Bazire is favoured to prevail with Urgos in the Group III international Prix Hersilie, a sprint for 6-8YOs worth 90,000 Euros at Vincennes on Friday. The stallion son of Kesaco Phedo has made several appearances in the top flight, with a fifth place in the Prix Jean le Gonidec his best performance - a field which included Un Mec d'Heripre, Uhlan du Val, and in which he beat home the likes of Up and Quick and Unique Quick. He has had eight wins in his 35 starts, his last victory at Vincennes in late October, and he currently has earnings of 252,640 euros and a record of 1.11.9 (1.55.3MR). Second favourite in early betting was Jean Loic Claude Dersoir's Sergent du Rib. The son of Baccarat du Pont has won nine lower grade races in 53 starts for 252,000 euros and a record of 1.12.8. He has not won since the winter meeting last year, when he pulled off three wins in a row, although his last two outings of a 3rd and 2nd show he is coming right back into form. Italy's Orione Degli has also come in for strong support in early markets. One of five international horses in the field, two Italians and three Swedes, the Conway Hall gelding comes off a last start second. He has won at group two level in Italy and at group three level in France with a win Prix de la Chaussee d'Antin in July. He has amassed earnings of 246,975 euros and taken a mark of 1.12.3 (1.56.2MR). Haraldinho, a son of former Hambletonian winner Scarlet Knight, is the top rated Swedish entry in the race. A Breeders Crown placegetter as a 3YO, Catarina Lundstrom's gelding has also earned cheques in Swedish gold division races, ande is attracting odds of 15/1 in early markets. He will have Dominik Locqueneux in the bike. Another son of a North American sire in the race is former Italian group two Citta de Treviso winner Maestrale Spin, a son of Lindy Lane, who is trained by Salvatore Minopoli but he ranked is a 34/1 outsider in early betting. Perhaps the dark horse in the race though is one from the powerful stable of French legend Jean Pierre Dubois, who will also be aboard his Coktail Jet mare Udine Trained by Jean Baudron, the 6YO mare is from the family of stallion Kiwi and follows that family Dubois pattern of being placed in suitable races as she develops, with 13 wins from 40 starts. She really hit her stride last season, and eight of her wins came in her last 13 races, including a group three win in the Prix Klymene in October.

French superstar Ready Cash is going for a shot at history Sunday, attempting to become the first horse to win four Prix de Bourgogne's a row. Philippe Allaire's stallion was seventh in the Prix du Bourbonnais last start but French handicappers have him at a little more than even money to achieve the feat over the 2100m journey from a mobile start. At present Ready Cash is equal to the great Ourasie on three wins in the event, the former star of Jean Rene Gougeon achieved the feat between 1988-90. Ourasie went on to win an unprecedented four Prix d'Amerique. And as an omen to Ready Cash's attempt to emulate him in January, he achieved the feat with three wins in a row, a miss and then a fourth win. Ready Cash also won three Prix de Amerique, and missed last year, so is on track to repeat it. But first he has to negotiate the Prix de Bourgogne, against what is a dream lineup, with 17 of the world's best trotters including last year's Prix d'Amerique winner Royal Dream and the rising stars of sport, the likes of Timoko, Texas Charm, Tiego Etang and Up and Quick - and the dark horse, The Best Madrik. There are no less than six millionaires in the race, three within a win or two of that total, and all but one having earned over 700,000 euros. It says volumes for the quality of the field, that that horse, Triode de Felliere, is the sixth choice of handicappers, despite beating most of this field in the Prix du Bourbonnais last time of asking. And a great mare such as Roxane Griff who was second in the Prix d'Amerique only two seasons ago, and has a Group I Prix de Paris on her stellar CV and a Group II winner two starts ago is a 34/1 chance. But that win was in the monte Prix Reynolds at the start of the Winter Meeting, and the brilliant daughter of Tenor de Baune is perhaps eyeing the Prix du Cornullier, the greatest race under saddle, a week before the Prix d'Amerique.

A storied trotting horse farm announced this week that it will stand recently retired Elitloppet winner Iceland in 2014 and also offer semen of Prix de Paris and Prix de France winner Maharajah. Allevamento Toniatti, operated for over 450 years in Italy, stands or provides semem for Credit Winner, From Above, Gigant Neo, Gruccione Jet, Igor Font, Ken Warkentin, Legenday Lover K, Naglo, Park Avenue Joe, Pine Chip and Supergill. Iceland (9m Scarlet Knight-Grandezza Ri-Probe) was a winner of over US$1.49 million and took a record of mile rate 1:52.5. His most notable wins were at age 4 the Gunnar Nordins Lopp, at 5 the C.Th. Ericssons Memorial and Solvallas Jubileumspokal and at age 6 the Elitloppet. His sire Scarlet Knight (Pine Chip-Ruby Crown) was the first European trained winner of the Hambletonian and his dam descends from the maternal family of Spinster Hanover. Maharajah (8m Viking Kronos-Chili Khan-Giant Chill) is still racing and sports earnings in excess of 19.1 million SEK, 29 wins in 55 career appearances, and a mile rate record of 1:53.1. He's been a classic winner since age 3 (winner of Svenskt Travkrierium among others). At age 4 he captured the Grand Prix de l'UET and the Svenskt Travderby, at age six he was second in the Prix d'Amerique and Prix de France and won the long distance Prix de Paris. At age 8 he won the Olympiatravet and in 2013 is preparing for another chance at the Prix d'Amerique. In fact, on December 26 Maharajah takes the next step toward Vincennes in January when he leads, as favorite, Solvalla's Lindahls Gold Final (Gr. II UET Masters Series, 2140 meters autostart, 300,000SEK to the winner). The field sets up as follows: Oasis Bi, B. Goop Maharajah, O. Kihlstrom Harry Haythrow, P. Untersteiner Winning Love, C.E. Lindblom Francais du Gull, E. Lindegren Perfectly Enough, E. Adielsson Rakas, P. Lennartsson B.W.L. Champion, Johnny Takter by Thomas H. Hicks for Harnesslink.com  

Swedish-bred Beckman heads a strong international contingent in the field for the the group III Prix Constant Hervieu the 105,000 euro feature Quinte race on the traditional Christmas Day meeting at Vincennes for 5 and 6 YOs. Beckman is now trained in France by Fabrice Solouy but he will be joined by his compatriots Discco A.E. Haraldhino on the back mark of 25m along with Italian star Olmo Holz while Sweden's Conrads Fredriks (a son of Credit Winner) and Twigs U.Canfly are off the frontline along with a trio of Italian entries, Orchetto Jet, Over The Moon and Orient Horse, plus Per Mento, the lone Danish entry. Beckman, a gelding by one of Viking Kronos's best sons Turbo Sund a former European 3YO champion, has been in super form in France, with three wins on the trot at Vincennes in Group III international company. Something of a late developer, Beckman joined Solouy's barn from Ake Svanstedt's Swedish operation after recording 10 wins from 14 starts with now US resident trainer, who was the horse's fourth trainer and really stepped him up through the grades in Sweden. He might also attract a bit of US handicapper money if he is racing at Vincennes at Prix d'Amerique time - he races in the colours of the US flag! Solouy is also the trainer of Italian-bred and owned Orient Horse who was second in the Prix Doynel de Saint-Quentin at the beginning of the Winter Meeting, and is also a runner-up in a Group one race in Italy. The favourites on the early tote, however, are French locals Toutobio and Toreador. Toutobio is owned and trained by Damien Bonne and has been one of those horses who has taken his time to go through the grades, mainly in provincial meetings with the odd visit to Vincennes for their lower stake races. But after a win and a second at in this year's Winter Meeting at Vincennes he stepped up and won his first Group III race last start in the Prix de Crecy la Chapelle at the Temple du Trot.   Similarly Jean Baptiste Bossuet's Toreador, a gelding by Fleuron Perrine, has won 9 of his 29 starts, mainly in lesser provincial company but has won two and had a second in his last three starts at the Hippodrome de Paris at Vincennes. Two others from the T generation's emerging ranks who are also coming in for handicapper support are Tzigane du Rib from Jean Luc Claude Desior's barn and Tony Boy, who is from the stable of Jean Michel Bazire who is a master at bringing a horse quietly through the grades. Another interesting runner is Turbo Jet from the stable of Jean Etienne Dubois, and is the winner of 12 of his 47 starts, and 379,350 euros in the bank - the most money earned in this field. The Joyau d'Amour stallion was also second in the Prix des Landes - a 110,000 euro group III at Vincennes at the end of last month and this is the sort of patient build up shown by a certain Royal Dream, the winner of the Prix d'Amerique, and a winner of this very race two years ago. A different Dubois stable, perhaps, but the brothers learned from the master, their incomparable father Jean-Pierre.     PRIX CONSTANT HERVIEU Vincennes 25/12/2013 FR Group III Europeene 2850 5-6 € 105,000 1 Twigs U.Canfly (5m Naglo - Twigs Likepine) Dr: Johanna Lindqvist Tr: Eva Skantz 2 Per Mento (6h Buvetier d'Aunou - Grace Classy) Dr: Jean Michel Alain Roussel Tr: Jean Michel Alain Roussel 3 Orient Horse (5h Abano As - Irma Del Rio) Dr: David Thomain Tr: Fabrice Souloy 4 Over the Moon Lf (5m Ganymede - Fantastica Cof) Dr: Nicolas Roussel Tr: Salvatore Minopoli 5 Tzigane du Rib (6g Kaiser Soze - Medda) Dr: Jean Loic Claude Dersoir Tr: Jean Loic Claude Dersoir 6 Orchetto Jet (5h Supergill - Frutute Jet) Dr: Pierre Levesque Tr: Stephanie Lepetit 7 Un Charme Fou (5h Love You - Ma Crown) Dr: Pierre Vercruysse Tr: Franck Leblanc 8 Toutobio (6g Grassano - Helene Gem) Dr: Damien Bonne Tr: Damien Bonne 9 Toreador (6g Fleuron Perrine - Jubellone) Dr: Francois Pierre Bossuet Tr: Jean Baptiste Bossuet 10 Tony Boy (6g First de Retz - Kuenza Sautonne) Dr: Jean Michel Bazire Tr: Jean Michel Bazire 11 Conrads Fredrik (6g Credit Winner - Ahmeida) Dr: Franck Ouvrie Tr: Jarmo Niskanen 12 Union Life (5m Not Disturb - Izakaline) Dr: Pierre Yves Verva Tr: Cedric Herserant 13 Disco A.E.

The Criterium Continental is the season finale for Europe's top entires and mares, a group one over 2100m and for a purse of 240,000 euros. French horses have dominated this event for the past 12 years, with the winners all coming from the Republic in that period including super young sires Prodigious and Love You, who both have progeny in the race. Criterium des 4 Ans winner Voltigeur de Myrt heads a field which includes no less than nine horses who competed in the French classic including second placed Volcan d'Urzy and third placed Vigove and which also includes six of the first seven home which speaks volumes for the quality of this field. Furthermore Vaux le Vicomte, who was third in the Grand Prix de l'UET is also in the field as is Prix de Selection (Group I) winner Village Mystic who won the Prix Octave Douesnel earlier in the meeting, with Voyage de Reve and Vigove, who are also both entered here, following him home. The there is former Criterium 3 Ans winner Vanika du Ruel, who has not won in more than 12 months, and seems to have gone off the boil after sweeping all before her as a juvenile and 3YO, winning four group ones. The favourite though will be Danielle Mottier's mare Victoire, who is starting to live up to the promise she showed when third in the Criterium des 3 Ans, this time last year. She beat much of this field, including the internationals, in the Prix Marcel Laurent at the beginning of the winter meeting, and then followed it up next start with a win in the Prix Ariste Hemard. The last non-French horse to win this event was the German superstar Abano As, and this year there is another German-bred entry Indigious (German Breeders Crown winner), who is a son of previous winner Prodigious. Coincidentally, he is trained in Sweden by Stig Johansson, who also trained Abano As for a time in his career, although he won the Criterium Continental from the stable of Gerd Holtermann. Sweden is also well represented by Dreams Take Time (Grosser Preis Von Deutschland, Group I), and the well performed System Performance (E3, Group I winner) and Porthos Amok (Swedish Travderby runner-up). Italian Derby winner Pascia' Lest who is now trained in France by Thierry Duvaldestin is another who is hoping to make the switch from 1000m sprint racing to success on the unique test which is Vincennes, and this shorter distance will suit his breeding. A son of Italian former Prix d'Amerique winner Varenne, and very talented, he is one of the early favourites for the race although it remains to be seen whether he can reverse the perception that horses with predominantly US bloodlines struggle to cope with the undulating test which is Vincennes with two downhill and one testing uphill sections. Another international runner with claims is Italian group one winner, Princess Grif, who was a brave third to Save The Quick in the European Mares Championship at Solvalla, which was won in World Record time. She is also now in a French stable, that of Fabrice Souloy.

American breeding is well represented in a field of four colts and eight fillies which line up for the top two-year-old race in Sweden, the Uppfödningslöpning  worth 141,000 euros  to the winner and over 1640m at Jagersro on Saturday. US resident Broadway Hall has two fillies in the race including the likely favourite, Solvalla’s Breeders Crown winner Enya Boko,  bred by the massive Boko Stables and a winner of five of her six starts. Broadway Hall’s other entrant is the Dutch-bred Everreach Draviet who is trained by Ola Samuelsson     and will have the advantage of Johnny Takter in the bike. Popular first season US-resident sire Muscle Hill also has two fillies in Eileen Boko, a winner of her Uppfödningslöpning heat for Lufti Kolgjini and non-winner Catwalk In, who is out of a mare by French sire Buvetier d’Aunou and coincidentally a half-sister to Kolgjini’s promising Orion Kronos who is now racing in France. Catwalk In is trained and driven by Fredrik Persson.      The other US sires are both ex-pats and include former Hambletonian winner Scarlet Knight, who was a top racehorse in Europe and a very successful sire already, and he has the colt Al Dente in the field, the winner of one of his four starts for trainer Tommy Hanne, who has given up the drive for Erik Adielsson. US Breeders Crown 2YO champ Banker Hall has the filly How Amazing Tooma, the winner of one from four for trainer-driver Jan Nordin. American National winner Clerk Magistrate is the sire of  Per Lennartsson’s colt Orion Tilly, the winner of the first two of his five starts including the Breeders Crown in Bergsaker. His granddam Icora Tilly, a fine racemare herself was an even better broodmare producing one of Sweden’s greatest horses, Victory Tilly, and five other winners of between $585,000 and $105,000. In total she produced 11 winners from 14 foals.     Roger Malmquist’s Going Kronos colt Soonerorlater, who won his qualifier for the Uppfödningslöpning and has been placed in both his Breeders Crown races this year. He is a product of Menhammar Stuteri, which stands Going Kronos, a promising Swedish-bred son of Viking Kronos. Viking  Kronos is represented himself in the race with Lutfi Kolgjini’s second entrant in the race, a who won his qualifier for the Uppfödningslöpning for the popular Swedish horseman. Lars I Nilsson’s filly  Si See Sea is another product of Swedish breeding, being by the Franco-American Jocose, a winner of the equivalent of $750,000 and had a record of 1.53.4. French sires are represented by the winner Bullyoung (c Love You) and  M.T.Jest (c Magnificent Rodney)  who are both out of American standardbred mares, a mix that is very successful in Scandinavia.
