The winter meeting in Paris closed on Saturday (March 6) and Swedish harness racing site www.sulkysport.se published a summery from the winter’s events.

As usual, Jean-Michel Bazire ended up at the top of both the trainer and driver lists, though Eric Raffin collected more Euros in total.

Ready Cash dominated the list of stallions and his offspring collected four victories in Group 1 races during the winter. Face Time Bourbon claimed the trophies in the Prix d’Amérique and the Prix de Selection, while Flamme du Goutier was successful in the Prix de l’Ile-de-France and Prix des Centaures.
