Scarlet Turgot wins the Prix de Cornulier

The last big race in Vincennes before next week's Prix d' Amerique is the Grade I Prix de Cornulier, a monte event raced at 2700 meters which was contested earlier today.  The ten year old, Scarlet Turgot was the winner, crossing the wire first in 3:16.73 or a kilometer rate of 1:12.9,



Winning the biggest monte race in France entitles the winner to return the following week to race in the Prix d' Amerique.  We will see if her connections decide to make the start.

If only we could get monte racing like this in the States. A huge field, well bunched together would be great.

My other takeaway from the video is the camera angles. I would love to see more camera angles used at North America tracks (inside, overhead, etc...).
