Arrival of the quinté : 2 – 1 – 12 – 16 – 8
Contested in heavy terrain over the distance of 2,000 m, the quinté pitted sixteen competitors, aged 4 and over.
Rosissim (n ° 15), Sa Sal (n ° 9), Royal force (n ° 11) and Combermere (n ° 7) quickly settled in the lead of the event before falling into the ranks at the time of the final sprint. At 200m from the post, seven horses could still claim to win, but the last word went to Lady Sidney (n ° 2). Patiently mounted by Stéphane Pasquier, the resident of Romain Le Dren Doleuze pronounced her effort along the charcoals before easily taking the best of Vilaro (n ° 1). At a distance from the leading duo, photography was necessary to decide On my life (n ° 12), Astrologia (n ° 16) and Moonlight symphony (n ° 8), which end, respectively in that order, separated by a short head and a nose. Thanks to an attractive finish, the first named managed to complete the finish of the trifecta. Combermere (n ° 7) fails, very close, at the foot of the quinté and precedes King Cobra (n ° 14) and Cressida (n ° 5).
