Garlingari is a true group horse and his track record speaks for himself, reports paris-turf.com. On Saturday, he made his comeback and gave a minimum of four kilos to his opponents. It was a return run after a tough stint in Sha Tin. “In Sha Tin, it’s quite simple, there are twelve starters, twelve horses of Group 1, explains Stéphane Pasquier, his jockey. When, for us, it’s the end of the season, for them, it’s the beginning. That’s what makes the difference.”
Garlingari is a Gr2 and Gr3 winner.
Fast behind the leader Royal Dolois in the Cagnes-sur-Mer Grand Prix du Departement Listed, Garlingari goes on the offensive mid-straight and easily wins in front of Parviz and Royal Dolois.
Stéphane Pasquier looks back on the success of his partner: “An expected victory, yes of course. In pure class, it’s logical, but Saturday, he made a comeback and gave weight to all his opponents. Racing is not an exact science. Horses are sometimes good on Mondays and less well on Tuesdays … He deserved such a victory after showing great potential in Group races. When we are better than others, it’s always easier.”
Garlingari, unless he travels to Dubai, his program could consist of the Exbury, Harcourt and Ganay Prizes.
