Everybody is waiting for Propulsion at Hippodrome Paris-Vincennes

Now that we know the twelve horses that won one of the fourteen entry tickets for the 2020 Grand Prix d’Amérique (eighteen runners maximum), let’s see at D-12 what are the upcoming dates.

The physical preparation of the champions
With less than two weeks to go before the biggest deadline of the year, sometimes a lifetime, the contenders for the 2020 Grand Prix d’Amérique must have reached or approached their optimal level of fitness in recent days. The difference is mainly between those who ran the Grand Prix de Belgique this Sunday, January 12 and those who played the card of freshness. For the former, the coaches have included maintenance exercises on the daily menu of champions. For those who are in the second case, one or two serious works should make it possible to arrive at the peak of form, while maintaining this touch of freshness (most often deliberate). A skilful mix while dosing, high level sport being a matter of details.

Information from Scandinavia
This will be one of the highly anticipated answers over the next few days (these next hours?): What is the level of competitiveness of the Scandinavian Propulsion? The winner of the Final of the European Trotting Masters of Trotting last September in Vincennes is the best Swedish in activity and participated in preparation races in his country from which it is difficult to draw conclusions. Unlike previous winters, Propulsion did not rub shoulders with the French qualifiers for the 2019-2020 winter meeting. The fact that he is coming to participate in his fourth Grand Prix d’Amérique (best ranking in 2018 – 3rd) or not is therefore one of the information eagerly awaited soon, especially since international trotters may not be legion.

Organizing trips
For fans, it’s time or never to organize your trip to Paris-Vincennes for January 26 or even the entire weekend. We are already seeing the establishment of a supporters club from the English Channel, the native region of Bahia Quesnot, which has qualified for the Grand Prix d’Amérique since its 2nd place in the Grand Prix of Burgundy. A moment of celebration, conviviality and fervor, the American Grand Prix is ​​also a superb experience in the stands for fans. Ticketing info.
