Here are the key phrases to remember from the press conference that took place after the Prix d’Amérique “Legend Race” on Sunday January 31 at the Paris-Vincennes Hippodrome.
Björn Goop, winner of the race with Face Time Bourbon: “Face Time Bourbon will normally compete in the Prix de France “Speed Race”. He has already recovered very well from his attempt. He is calmer than in the past, he has improved even more. In the future, I think he will race in North America. He’s also capable of shining in the Elitloppet, but I don’t know if his owner is going to want to field him in this event. I was less demonstrative after my victory because we obviously missed the crowd and the context is difficult. But I was still happy and moved, it’s the biggest race in the world, it’s the most important successes in my career. ”
Jean-Michel, second with Davidson du Pont: “Behind Face Time Bourbon, I had a clear course. It went very well. I still thought I could win after the last turn, but the winner was untouchable. Davidson du Pont will also compete in the Prix de France “Speed Race”, he has obviously recovered well from his race today. For now, Face Time Bourbon has left to build a legendary horse. I do not see the solution to beat him currently. ”
Franck Nivard, third with Gu d´Héripré: “Gu d´Héripré performed remarkably well. He still has plenty of room for improvement, he probably has the potential to win the Prix d’Amerique but he is unlucky, he will face Face Time Bourbon again. My partner has recovered perfectly from the day’s race, everything is fine. “
