Hussard du Landret wins Prix de Bretagne

It was again French trotters in command in the Prix de Bretagne, which is the first qualification race to the Prix d’Amerique.

Prix de Bretagne is raced over 2,700 meters – the same distance as the Prix d’Amerique – and was won by rank outsider, Hussard du Landret (sired by Bird Parker) with trainer/driver Benoit Robin followed by the defending Amerique-champion, Hooker Berry with Niclas Bazire and Hokkaido Jiel with David Thomain.

Since the race first was open to international trotters in 2004, it has only been won by a French trotter.

Hussard du Landret, who paid 30-1 as the winner, was timed in 1.55.4 (mile rate).

Italy’s Ampia Mede SM with Franck Nivard finished fourth as the best foreign trotter.

Sweden’s San Moteur with Björn Goop got a difficult trip but finished strong from last in the field to finish in sixth.

The first three horses past the post – all born in 2017 – are now qualified for the Prix d’Amerique.
