Spotlight on Sébastien Guarato, Face Time Bourbon’s trainer


15 December 2020

He trains Face Time Bourbon, winner of Prix d’Amérique Races ZEturf QUALIF # 2 on Sunday and already promoted to the favorite of Prix d’Amérique-Legend Race 2021. Sébastien Guarato has been one of the best French tune-ups for many years. He finished number 1 in his category in terms of number of victories in 2015 and 2016. His record includes almost all of the biggest races on the French program, including three times the Prix d’Amérique-Legend Race. He won the Harness World Championship twice thanks to Bold Eagle, in 2016 and 2017, and once with Face Time Bourbon, in 2020.

Born in 1972, Sébastien Guarato began his training career at a very young age, at age 22. His innate sense of a trotter and his natural talent got him into the top 10 just 10 years after his debut. His success also comes from solid teamwork and the ideal infrastructure for the development of his horses. The native of Bordeaux has a superb establishment located in the Orne, in the town of Ménil-Bérard, and named Haras de la Meslerie. Sébastien Guarato has just one goal in mind for Prix d’Amerique Races ZEturf competition: to clinch a fourth trophy in the Legend Race thanks to Face Time Bourbon.
