Ready Cash, the seven-year-old French trotter, yesterday won the 91st Prix d’Amerique at the Vincennes racetrack, France.

The race, with €500,000 for the winner, was held in front of 50,000 spectators and over a long distance of 2,700m. Victory was Ready Cash’s second in a row at the mythical race in Paris.

Eighteen horses lined up for the race considered by many as the World Championship for trotters.

Lisa America (Dominik Locqueneux) was the fastest after the official start and this Italian mare opened a half-length’s lead from Timoko (Richard Westerink) and Roxane Griff (Eric Raffin).

However, after 500m Lisa America was overtaken by Timoko with favourites Ready Cash (Franck Nivard) and Maharajah (Orjan Kihlstrom) running on the outside in fourth and fifth positions.

Some 300 metres from the post, Timoko also started to slow down and Ready Cash took its chance well, dashing strongly home and finishing the rce first ahead of Roxane Griff, outsider The Best Madrik (Jean Etienne Dubois), Maharajah and Timoko.

Ready Cash won the race in an average time of 1.12” per kilo-metre to equal the record time established in 2007 by Offshore Dream.

Ready Cash is sired by French stallion Indy de Vive and Kidea.
