November 9, 2015 - Cristal Money (3m Coktail Jet-Making Money) took today’s Gr. II Prix Abel Bassigny (purse €120,000, 2175 meters, 10 three year old starters) clocked in 1.13.3kr (fractions 1.10.9kr at 1500 meters to go; 1.12.6kr at the 1000; 1.14.4kr at 500), closing stoutly for driver Franck Nivard, trainer Thierry Duvaldestin and owner Richard Cohen.

The even-money favorite defeated Coquin Bebe (3m Ranhco Gede-Noble Nenette) at 2.4/1 handled by J-M Bazire for trainer Franck Leblanc. 15/1 Cahal de Rioults (3m Password-Plesse des Rioults) was third for trainer Philippe Allaire and reinsman Joseph Verbeeck ahead of Cobra Bleu (3m Fortuna Fant-Nuit Irisee) for trainer/driver Pierre Vercruysse at 9/1. Clever Lymm (3m Korean-Oquidia) was next for Roberto Andreghetti, trainer Fabrice Souloy and Ecurie le Tremont.

This group represents a leading contingent of FR-bred three year-old colts at this time.

The Gr. II Prix Reine du Corta (purse €120,000, 2175 meters, 13 three year-old filly starters) was also the Pick5 event and 17.9/1 Combattante (3f Sam Bourbon-New York) took the victory rallying late for Pierre Vercruysse and owner/trainer Louis Baudron.

This filly was timed in 1.12.5kr after quick fractions (1.08.9kr at 1500 meters to go; 1.10.6kr at 1000; 1.12.7kr at 500). Cavalleria (3f Prodigious-Janga) was second, trained by Sebastien Guarato and driven by Eric Raffin. Cylee Nevele (3f Sam Bourbon-Quick Nevele) ended third for Joseph Verbeeck and owner/trainer Philippe Allaire with fourth to Cirantana (3f Jam Pridem-Kamistie Jet) driven and trainer by Romain Derieux and owner Antonio De Sousa.

Favorite Calita Wood challenged on the outer mid-race and then was pulled up.

Dam of the winner, New York, is unusually inbred for a FR mare, she by In Love With You (Coktail Jet-Amour d’Aunou-Speedy Somolli-Nesmile) from Comtesse d’Aunou (Baltic Speed-Nesmile). New York is dam of Texas Style 1:57.3 (US$342,277) and Nesmile produced Unispeed US$321,000), Buvetier d’Aunou (US$907,000), Defi d’Aunou (US$2,680,000) and Extreme Aunou (US$278,000).

Monte leaders battled in the Prix Orly Roederer (purse €120,000, 2850 meters, seven European four year-old participants) and even-money favorite Best Of Jets (4m Magnificent Rodney-Plume Jets) was the easy start to finish winner for jockey Francois Lagadeuc for owner/trainer Jean-Michel Baudouin.

1.6/1 second choice Beau Gamin (4m Quinoa de Gers-Cadette) was second for Eric Raffin and trainer Sebastien Guarato with 12/1 Be Mine de Houelle (4f Scipion du Goutier-Olita de Kefruso) third for Franck Nivard and trainer Franck Nivard.

The winner scored in 1.14.3kr off a rated pace (1.14.8kr at 1500; 1.14.4kr at 1000; 1.14.6kr at 500).

Aged performers battled in the Gr. III Prix du Languedoc (purse €95,000, 2700 meters, 10 starters age six and up) with 2.8/1 Moving On (6f Quite Easy-Kings Blondie) the rallying winner for Franck Nivard, trainer Fabrice Souloy and Ecurie IC Equine AB.

The 1.13.9kr clocked winner defeated El Mago Pellini (6m Chocolatier-Mr Intuition) and Joseph Verbeeck, driving for trainer Lutfi Kolgjini at 8.7/1. Shadow d’Odyssee (9g Urfist des Pres-Battante d’Odyssee) was third at 11/1 driven by Eric Raffin and trainer Pierre Belloche, finishing ahead of Prince di Poggio (6m Varenne-Moon Shadow) and teamster Mathieu Abrivard for trainer Vincent Lacroix. Quick Fix, Reine Helene and Spain’s Trebol were next across the line.

Fractions during this competitive event were rated (1.14.2kr at 1500; 1.14.5kr at 1000; 1.14.9kr at 500) before the group stormed home.

The card also included today’s Quinte+ (jackpot €4.4 million) Prix d’Azay le Rideau (A) for €38,000 purse over 2700 meters. From the 16 horse field emerged winner Bambou de Calvi (4g Korean-Gremonde) for teamster M. Verva and Ecurie Mexique Ranch. This 35/1 winner scored in 1.14.3kr off even fractions (1.13.9kr at 1500 to go point; 1.13.2kr  at 1000; 1.14.1 at 500). 9/1 Boogie Bouy (4g Saxo de Vandel-Massada) was second for Franck Nivard and trainer Sylvain Roger with third to 11/1 Balthazar du Gite (4g Mon Premier Cehere-Miss du Gite) and driver Pierre Vercruysse.

The relative longshots produced a large exact order payoff in excess of €93,000 for a €2 wager, without the jackpot.
