Horsy Dream impressive winner at Enghien

The prestigious Prix de l’Atlantique raced Saturday afternoon (April 20) in front of 11,013 spectators at the Enghien Track in the outskirts of Paris, France, was won in a convincing style by Horsy Dream with Eric Raffin in the bike.

Horsy Dream seemed to be in a class of his own and won by open lengths in 1:53 (mile rate) which is a new race record. The old record was held by Norwegian bred trotter Looking Superb and was 1:53.3.

The purse for the winner in this Group 1 event raced over 1-5/16th miles was 90,000 Euro.

At Jägersro, the main event, a qualifying race for the Paralympic Trot to be raced on May 4 at Aby, was won handily by Italian trotter Bengurion Jet with trainer Alessandro Gocciadoro in the bike. Bengurion Jet (sired by Maharajah) won easily in 1:53.3f (mile rate).

Gocciadoro was the man of the day, winning three races from as many starts.
