Jerry Riordan usually succeeds in Breeders Course. And his Dea Grif didn’t disappoint anyone in Breeders Course - the three-year-old mare elite.
– We had high hopes for her, I knew we had a fast horse, trainer Riordan said immediately after that the victory and SEK 400,000 were secured.
1.11,1 was the brilliant time and then it was only the sixth start in the career for the three-year-old mare. It is Renato Bruni who owns and who enjoyed the tributes at the award ceremony at Solvalla.
– We have believed in her, ever since we bought her, Bruni said.
This time it was the French top driver Matthieu Abrivard who sat in the sulky and he was also impressed:
- She was easy to drive, the race was easy. After the favorite (Look of Love DE) galloped, everything went as planned.
That just Abrivard got the chance to drive was owner Bruni's merit. He is like the top French driver and trainer Riordan had no objection.
– I like Matthieu Abrivard, yes everyone likes him. And Gustav Johansson [who drove last] will get the chance in the future, Riordan promised.
Matthieu Abrivard let Dea Grif open well, let Alessandro Gocciadoro with Don’t Say Gar pass - but then speeded to an easy victory over the homestretch. Don’t Say Gar held on to second place ahead of Dorothea Mil.
