races / 04.12.2022

Fontainebleau, Tuesday

Well on the way to the start of this Prix Guy Thibault (Class 2) thanks to the launch of its young driver, Arthur Mossé, Absurd (Fastnet Rock) only had to carry 53.5 kg! Last year, the student and representative of Wertheimer & Frère completed his 3-year year with a second place in 165and South Derby. Recently, for their comeback, after almost a year of absence, Absurde finished third in Class 2 at Chantilly Sands. And, as we know, when not bothered by his health problems, Absurde is capable of great things… Today, his main opponent on paper was media stream (Frankel), a former classic hopeful of André Fabre’s team, who was making a big comeback after neutering. Quickly installed ahead of the race, the resident of Carlos Laffon-Parias managed to control the race from one end of the course to the other. Galloping freely in pole position, 400m from the finish, he responded well to his jockey’s demands, breaking definitively 200m from the finish. rear, Forest of Wisdom (Iffraaj) runs first, taking second place, four and a half lengths ahead. Somewhat disappointingly, Media Stream certainly needed a run to get back to its best. He eventually finished third, three and a half lengths ahead.

A jockey surprised to win so easily! Already honored in the fourth round of the program, the Prix des Grands Cerfs (Maiden) with illic (Iffraaj), the creation and silks of the Wertheimer & Frère stable have doubled thanks to Absurde. Still on horseback, the winning apprentice, Arthur Mossé, declared in Equidia: “It’s really nice to win so easily. Also, this is the first time I’ve looked back to see the differences! At 400m from the finish, I demanded a lot of effort from Absurde. And 200m from the goal, I turned around and was won! Before the race, I was told to go ahead. I am very happy to win this race. »
