The winners keep on flowing in for Soldier Of Fortune on the Flat and over Jumps and he was responsible for another black-type victory on the level in France on Saturday.
The Michael Figge-trained Shutterburg (4c Soldier Of Fortune-Nazlia, by Polish Precedent) took the Listed 94th Grand Prix de Bordeaux by no less than five and half lengths under Antoine Hamelin.
“This horse did good things today,” Hamelin told JDG. “The ground was a question mark beforehand but it didn’t pose a problem, he was in top form. He was going to win from start to finish and as soon as I left the stalls I thought he was a little above the others.”
Connections are now considering going for another leg of the Defi Du Galop, a competition of regional black-type events in France and Europe.
