In the Vincennes co-featured Prix de Croix (Gr. II, purse 100,000€, 2850 meters, International five year olds), the well regarded Power (5m Googoo Gaagaa-La Vici) circled the harness racing field in the lane to score at 15/1 odds with Eric Raffin the pilot.

Robert Bergh trains Power for In The Zone AB as he recorded career victory 14 in 30 starts, now two win in France from three starts, and his life earnings increased to 909,746€. Race time was 1.16.2kr over a heavy, snow affected course (fractions 1.16.6kr at the 1500 to go mark; 1.16.7kr at the 1000 and 1.16.6kr with 500 meters remaining). 15/1 Gelati Cut (5m Coktail Jet-Variety Cut) held second on the pegs for Gabriele Gelormini and trainer R.Ch. Larue. 20/1 Goldy Mary (5m Ready Cash-Bloody Mary), bred by Jean Pierre Dubois, was third for trainer/driver Matthieu Abrivard and Ecurie HM Stable. 42/1 Guzz Mearas (5m Muscle Mass-Intensity Kronos) was fourth for Pierre Vercruysse, ahead of the 1.3/1 favorite Gu d’Heripre (5m Coktail Jet-Vedetta d’Heripre) for Nicolas Ensch. 177/1 Grand Art, 215/1 Gala Tejy and 2.7/1 Aetos Kronos finished sixth through eighth.

The race start was delayed due to shoeing work on Power and track maintenance.
