Rebel WITH A Cause!
OUR 10th WINNER OF 2021: LEXINGTON REBEL, trained by Jerome Reynier and ridden by Stephane Pasquier: The €20,000 Classe 3 'PRIX DE SAN REMO', at Cagnes-Sur-Mer over 1,600m.
Not the way we like to win races, but after finishing 2nd in this race, it was discovered that the jockey of the original winner rode using a 3lb allowance, which was not in the conditions of the race. Therefore, after an enquiry, the result was overturned and we received confirmation from France Galop yesterday that the race was ours, giving us cause for celebration!

Lexington Rebel, a son of Dabirsim and purchased at the Arqana Breeze-Up sale, moved to be trained by Jerome Reynier in France, as he is French Owner Premium qualified, so on top of the already lucrative prize money on offer, we took the decision to send him to the up and coming young trainer in the south of France. He is clearly enjoying the climate there - the yard is located between Aix- en-Provence and Marseille - as he has won over €28,000 since November.
Well done to his owners and to the Reynier team on their win!
Great to have the 10 winners on the board now and we are SO close to passing the £100,000 of prize money won this year, with some very nice runners coming up between now and Saturday, we certainly hope to add healthily to both totals. Good luck to all our owners.
