Courses / 06.11.2022

Le Croisé-Laroche, Sunday

Class horse at the start of the Grand Prix de la Ville de Marcq-en-Barœul (Class 1), Now we Know (Kendargent) showed that he still had plenty of resources to triumph like the strong. Last year, the pupil and representative of Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges finished second in the Prix Quincey (Gr3) before earning his spurs in the big handicaps. He had just returned to success at Longchamp, on heavy ground, in the Prix du Parc aux Daims (Class 2), where he was ahead of serious customers such as Gregolimo (Galiway), or still Soul Train (Manduro) …

Sunday, picked up on leaving, the resident of Nicolas Clément was able to benefit from a good race behind the host, Kabir (Lord of England). Patient when the race started, Sébastien Maillot waited until the last moment to shift No we Know to the final phase. But once it saw the light of day, the horse made short work of its rivals. After having deluded for a long time, Twist (Pivotal) couldn’t compete when No we Know came to attack them. He ranks second at just under two lengths. At half a length, Kabir is third.

He deserved his vacation

His jockey, Sébastien Maillot, confided on Equidia: “The race was held at a steady pace. Everything went well, although I felt that Now we Know was not very comfortable in the tight turns. The track is very choppy, I think it imposes itself on its class. This year, it took time for the horse to get back to his best… But with this win, I think he deserved a vacation and we’ll see him again next year. »
