Qualified during the Prix d’Amérique Races ZEturf QUALIF # 5 Prix de Bourgogne, Délia du Pommereux will line up on Sunday January 31 at the start of Prix d’Amérique Legend Race, first of three Ultimate Finals, before Prix de France Speed Race and Prix de Paris Marathon Race. This will be the mare’s third attempt in the Harness Trotting World Championship. Disqualified in 2019, then sixth last year, she will be keen to do even better in the 2021 edition. An ambition that is a priori achievable if we consider the sparkling form displayed during her most recent performances. Délia du Pommereux competed in Prix d’Amérique Races ZEturf QUALIF # 2 Prix du Bourbonnais, QUALIF # 5 Prix de Bourgogne, and QUALIF # 6 Prix de Belgique, last Sunday. And her rise to power speaks for itself: she finished fourth, then third and second. She only found the formidable Davidson du Pont, announced as the second favorite in the Legend Race, to outstrip her quite a bit in QUALIF # 6.
Winner of over one million euros in earnings, Délia du Pommereux has got Noël Lolic as breeder and owner. She is trained in the department of Orne by Sylvain Roger, who was relatively confident at ZEturf’s microphone as to the chances of her protégé in the Legend Race: “It will be difficult for her to beat Face Time Bourbon but if she benefits of a favorable course and that it fights in the head, it is able to finish quickly “. The 8-year-old girl, constant at the highest level of the competition since 2016, will therefore have many supporters in the Ultimate Finals.
