The Paris winter meeting, where Vincennes will offer races several days per week until late February, took its start on Wednesday (Nov. 3) afternoon and a big milestone was hit by France’s leading trainer and driver Jean-Michel Bazire.

Bazire has more or less dominated the sport in his home country for more than 20 years and he is multi-talented as a driver. On Wednesday’s card, Bazire collected his 6,000th sulky win by driving 2-year-old Jourdam Seven (Bird Parker) to victory.

Bazire has claimed wins in the Elitloppet (twice), Prix d’Amérique (four times), Prix de France (four times), Prix de Paris (seven times) and has many other big wins.

The opening day of the meeting featured the $105,000 Prix des Cevennes for older trotters and Alain Laurent’s mare Chica de Joudes (Jag de Bellouet) upset from the lead and came home in a mile rate of 2:00.4 over 1.7 miles.

Breeders Crown finals close the stakes season in Sweden

This Sunday (Nov. 7), Eskilstuna racetrack in Sweden plays host to the four finals of Breeders Crown in Sweden and the purse in each division is $373,000 (horses bred outside of Sweden races for half that purse).

The Breeders Crown counts as the last of the really big races in Sweden this year and the four fields are truly spectacular. Even with dominant 4-year-old Calgary Games absent, the races are shaping up to be thrilling.

The 3-year-old colts and geldings are first out and Kriteriet winner Francesco Zet solved his elimination at Solvalla on Oct. 24 quite safely, even if he got some tough resistance from Jörgen Westholm’s Global Concept, who was more than brave after a first over trip in high pace. An interesting race with several horses that can go all the way, which is the fact for all four finals.
