Sunday January 3 at Hippodrome Paris-Vincennes, the first two places of Prix d’Amérique Races ZEturf QUALIF # 5 Prix de Bourgogne were trusted by a single owner, Antonio Somma (in our photo, on the left, alongside Björn Goop and Sébastien Guarato). This 60-year-old entrepreneur, born in the Naples region, runs the Scuderia Bivans, a structure with yellow and green coats. Face Time Bourbon won in front of his color mate Vivid Wise As. A superb feat for one owner! Scuderia Bivans shines above all in Italy, the country where it is based and where it finished first in its category by winnings, in 2020.
In France, Antonio Somma entrusts his horses to trainer Sébastien Guarato, his tricolor workforce stands at 7. He has around sixty trotters in all, mainly in Italy, but also in the United States. Scuderia Bivans was created in the early 2000s. In 2006, Ilaria Jet offered its first Group I in the yellow jacket, it was in the Grand Critérium in Milan. The prestigious victories follow one another and the supreme consecration arrives in 2020 in Grand Prix d’Amérique, thanks to the champion Face Time Bourbon. The 2021 edition of the World Harness Trotting Championship promises to be even more fabulous for the Italian team, which could delegate three competitors at the start. Face Time Bourbon, Vivid Wise As and Tony Gio would be Antonio Somma’s golden assets.
