February 10, 2019. The Swedish Readly Express takes part in its second winter meeting at Hippodrome Paris-Vincennes where it challenges the French at the highest level. He won the Prix d’Amérique “Legend Race” the previous year and has just finished third in the 2019 World Championship. Ready Cash‘s son takes his revenge two weeks later by beating the protagonists who beat him in the queen event. An impressive success which marked the spirits!
Björn Goop knows the good basic speed of his partner. He gives Readly Express a great start. The tandem are resolutely taking the lead to lead at a sustained pace. The Swedish pilot knows the science of the train perfectly. It’s a real tactical race. Despite the attack by champion Bold Eagle, two-time winner of the “Legend Race” Prix d’Amerique, on the final turn, Readly Express kept his lead up to the post and won loose. Bold Eagle has to be content to fight for second place with Uza Josselyn, who has always followed the future winner. The latter retains the badge of honor in front of Sébastien Guarato’s resident. Belina Josselyn and Looking Superb, the two competitors who edged out in the Prix d’Amerique “Legend Race” two weeks earlier, were disqualified early in the race. Trotting 1’10’’3, the protégé of Timo Nurmos achieved one of the best times in the history of the Prix de France“ Speed Race ”.
