Dr Rio (Rio de la Plata) recorded his second win of the year at Pornichet last night when he won the Class 2 for 2yos over a mile and half a furlong on the all-weather under a great ride from Alex Roussel. He was drawn wide so it wasn’t easy to get to the front but he did so before the first turn which gave him an advantage over the others as Pornichet is a tight track. Roussel kicked off the bend and got a few lengths out of his rivals and he stayed on up the straight to win by a length.
This was his second win from 6 runs and he has now won over €45,000 in prize money. Hopefully he can continue to progress and win more money over the winter and onto next year.
