|Ready Cash becames France's all-time richest trotter with this win in the Trotting Masters final in a mile rate of 1:54.1.|
Ready Cash, with Franck Nivard in the bike, won the race, which was contested over the same distance as the Prix d’Amerique – 2,700m – in 1:54.1 (mile rate), which equaled the track record for that distance. The purse for the winner was $300,000.
Ready Cash is now the all-time leading French trotter with winnings of more than $5.6 million.
Timoko with Jos Verbeeck finished strongly, taking second after finding racing room late down the stretch.
Last year’s dominant trotter in Europe, 10-year old Commander Crowe, showed once more that he may be over the hill and finished ninth. Nahar - winner of the Elitlopp – made a break and was disqualified and placed last.
On the undercard Rori Axe - a 3-year-old filly by Ready Cash won the group III Prix Emile Wendling over 2,700m with a purse for the winner of $50,000 in 1:59.4 (mile rate) with Jos Verbeeck in the bike.
