16 November 2021

Sunday, November 21 will be a day of big firsts for Zacon Gio. The 6-year-old trotter will start in France and at the Paris-Vincennes Hippodrome. He will therefore discover the prestigious Prix d’Amérique Races ZEturf competition with the aim of a place in the top three of the Prix d’Amérique Races ZEturf Qualif # 1 – Prix de Bretagne which would qualify him for the three Finals. This champion born in Italy was trained for a long time by Holger Ehlert after taking his first steps with Domenico Minopoli. In early October, he moved to France and is now playing under the rule of the formidable Jean-Michel Bazire. A new adventure for this son of Ruty Grif belonging to Giuseppe Franco.

Zacon Gio presents an impressive business card. Enlightened observers had even awarded him the title of best trotter in the world, after his victory in the International Trot in New York in 2019. He has won many prestigious events, broken multiple speed records, and above all, he s’ Face Time Bourbon phenomenon is allowed to beat twice. A first time in May 2019 in Modena, and another on October 25, 2020 in Naples, in the Grand Prix de la Loterie. The two-time Prix d’Amerique Legend Race winner got his revenge, however, by triumphing in the same Grand Prix de la Loterie a month and a half ago, while his transalpine rival could not have done better than fifth. The pair of cracks will meet on Sunday in the Prix d’Amerique Races ZEturf Qualif # 1. A new clash that all horse racing fans are looking forward to!
