Sunday (Nov. 22) is the day when the first of four ”B-races” ahead of the Prix d’Amérique in Paris is scheduled and 18 trotters are scheduled to contest the $112,700 Prix de Bretagne over 2,700 meters.

A place among the top three is the goal for every horse that wants to participate in Prix d’Amérique in late January of 2021 and there is a big chance that some upset horses will secure their spots, respectively.

The Prix de Bretagne has the same conditions as the Prix d’Amerique — 18 horses will contest it over 2,700 meters.
For the richest horses in the race, the Prix de Bretagne usually develops as a preparation race before the trainers try to peak their horses closer to the big race.

Gocciadoro dominated in Modena

Alessandro Gocciadoro-trained horses claimed gold and silver medals when the $483,000 Gran Premio Unione Europea was held in Modena, Italy on Sunday afternoon (Nov. 15).

Swedish driver Örjan Kihlström was entrusted behind Gocciadoro’s Alrajah One (Maharajah) and the duo took a safe wire to wire win in a mile rate 1:57.1 over 1.3 miles.

Alessandro Gocciadoro’s Axl Rose had to travel first over during the second half of the race and held strongly as second without being a threat to the stablemate in front.
