Up And Quick steals limelight in Paris

The 94th edition of the prestigious Gran Prix d’Amerique race was held Sunday afternoon at the Vincennes racetrack in Paris. As in the previous years, eighteen horses lined up for this race which is considered one of the major events in the international trotting calendar. This year it was French Up And Quick which managed to triumph in the Gran Prix d’Amerique organised on a long distance of 2700m under the guidance of Jean Michel Bazire.

It was Swedish Mosaique Face (Pierre Vercuysse) which stormed ahead after the official start of the race. During the first metres, this horse opened a half length lead from Italian Napoleon Bar (Enrico Bellei), Up And Quick (Jean Michel Bazire) and American Solvato (Orjan Kihlstrom). However with 600m to go Mosaique Face started to slow down and was overtaken by Up And Quick which triumphed easily by a length from Voltigeur De Myrt (Gabriele Gelormini) and Timoko (Bjorn Goop). Uhlan Du Val (Cedric Megissier) had also a very good performance, ending in fourth place.

Up And Quick clocked a good average time of 1.12.2” per kilometer. Meanwhile this was Bazire’s third win in this prestigious race. He had also won the 1999 edition with American mare Moni Maker and the 2004 edition with French Kesaco Phedo.

Din ingriet fuq distanza ta’ 2700m, kellha bidu bil-waqqaf, u b’kollox tmintax –il ziemel ippartecipaw serkin ma’ serkin. Din kienet ukoll l-94 edizzjoni tal-Amerique u ntrebhet mill-favorit Up And Quick misjuq minn Jean Michel Bazire.

Hekk kif inghata l-bidu ufficjali mill-ewwel kien l-Izvediz Mosaique Face (Pierre Vercruysse) li mar quddiem. Dan fetah vantagg zghir mit-Taljan Napoleon Bar (Enrico Bellei), Up And Quick (Jean Michel Bazire) u l-Amerikan Solvato misjuq minn Orjan Kihlstrom. It-tigrija bidlet l-andament madwar 600m mit-tmiem ghax kien f’dak il-mument li

Mosaique Face beda jnaqqas mill-giri u b’Bazire jpoggi lil Up And Quick quddiem. Dan baqa’ jzomm l-ewwel post sal-linja finali meta ttrijonfa b’tul mill-outsider Voltigeur De Myrt (Gabriele Gelormini), Timoko (Bjorn Goop) u Uhlan Du Val (Cedric Megissier).
