Once a year, the racecourse of Compiègne puts the small dishes in the big ones on the occasion of its Grand Prix. Endowed with 60,000 euros, half of which will go to the winner’s entourage, this great event has smiled on Germany this Saturday, June 25th. Quest the moon, a 6-year-old gelding, has indeed made a very competitive race his own. Leaning against the outer rail, on the grandstand side, therefore, the resident of Sarah Steinberg left no chance to Salesman, trained in Chantilly by André Fabre.

A horse that likes to travel

Officially, Sarah Steinberg prepares her horses near Munich, Germany. But his horses often race in France. Quest the moon, for example, remained on a victory in Marseille. That is to say if this horse likes to travel. As was already the case in the south of the country, Quest the moon was this Saturday mounted by René Piechulek who is also based in Germany. This jockey became famous overnight, or almost, last October, when he surprisingly won the price of the Arc de Triomphe, the most beautiful race in the world. That day, Torquator Tasso, the winner, was listed at 72/1!

This Saturday, June 25, Quest the moon was however one of the favorites, being rated at 4/1. As a result, there were many winners on the racecourse. Hence this good atmosphere that was in place throughout an afternoon that a light rain, at times, was not likely to spoil.

It should be noted that this Compiègne Grand Prix was the 5th stage of the Défi du galop, a tournament taking place over 17 stages. Third this Saturday, Shafaaf is now at the head of this richly endowed challenge.
