An 11th Win by Mensen Ernst!
WINNER 67 OF 2022: MENSEN ERNST, trained by Simone Brogi and ridden by Mr Gabriel Roth Le Vaillant: 'The Prix Du Futuroscope' over 2,400m at La-Roche-Posay
Yesterday's race was for Gentleman Amateur Riders and he lined up under the top weight of 11 stone 1. Gabriel took him to the front after about half a furlong and dictated the pace. As they came past the winning post for the first time, he was bowling along with ears pricked. Turning for home, the field behind him had, one by one, came off the bridle. Driven to the line, Gabriel just then had to ease him and managed a 'Pour Moi' style celebration on the line, taking the race by 3/4 of a length.

We are edging closer to the magic £1,000,000 of prize money won this year, with £23,000 to go! That would be amazing if we could achieve that this year at such an early stage."
