29 October 2014, Toulouse, France ~ Mister Ginoux (Amer x Nacree Al Maury), after winning his debut at Bordeaux (July 10), remained unbeaten when taking the French Arabian Breeders’ Challenge for Colts (Gr3 PA) at Toulouse, France, on Wednesday, 29 October. From the stables of Al Shaqab and trained by Thomas Fourcy, the colt was ridden by Julien Auge, easily dominating his rivals, in the 1,600-metre contest.
Speaking after winning the € 45,000 race, Thomas Fourcy explained: “He came to me late. I hesitated about letting him have his first start in the big race at Saint Cloud but I preferred to be patient and run him in Bordeaux. I thought he would win easier that day but he saved something for today! He is a very good horse that we will keep for the European season next year.”
