Ampia Mede Sm wins eighth straight

The 5-year-old Italian mare, Ampia Mede Sm, might be Europe’s next trotting queen.

Saturday afternoon (Dec. 4) at Vincennes, Ampia Mede Sm with Franck Nivard in the bike won her eighth 8 in a row in the Group 2-race, Prix Doynel de Saint-Quentin in a very convincing way.

Ampia Mede Sm, who is trained by Fabrice Souloy, went around leading Ganay de Banville – recently third in the first qualification race to the Prix d’Amerique  – to win the 1-3/4-mile event in 1:56.2 (mile rate).

Her winning streak started on July 3 at Enghien – the other big harness track in Paris – and Ampia Mede Sm has won over distances from 1-5/16-mile and up to 1-3/4-mile.

During 2021, Souloy has developed the Italian mare from an average trotter to a star, and Ampia Mede Sm will now be aimed toward the Prix d’Amerique.

Her ticket for a spot in the field will be a win in the Prix Tenor de Baune at Vincennes om Dec. 26 as her winnings will not secure her a spot in the big race.

Ampia Mede Sm is sired by the French sire, Ganymede, and out of the Italian mare, Polimpia Slide Sm, she by Yankee Slide.
