Last year, Bird Parker won the Grand Prix du Bourbonnais ahead of Bold Eagle.

The Grand Prix du Bourbonnais, the second qualifying event at the Grand Prix d’Amérique, will top the bill Sunday, December 9 at Vincennes Hippodrome de Paris. This exciting Group II offers many challenges.

The first two of the 2017 edition will be struggling, namely Bird Parker and Bold Eagle. The double winner of the Grand Prix d’Amérique will be keen to take his revenge on his contemporary. His many fans hope to see him erase his relatively disappointing fourth place acquired November 18 in the Grand Prix de Bretagne, first qualifying race at the Grand Prix d’Amérique. The champion will run with no iron for the first time, a configuration that could make it even more powerful.

The aforementioned Grand Prix de Bretagne will indeed be in everyone’s minds. Davidson du Pont, the laureate, will not be in the game, but Delia du Pommereux, his excellent runner-up despite a fluid course, is among the protagonists. Its sparkling shape allows it to reach the top step of the podium. Carat Williams, Briac Dark, Cash Gamble and Valko Jénilat, respectively 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th, will also provide the show. Traders, who remains on three wins in a row, will be watching. Remember that the first three will automatically get their ticket for the Grand Prix d’Amérique on January 27th.
