Amadou 4yo Hurdle: Hermès Baie flies again

30 April 2021

Amadou : Hermès Baie avait ses ailes aux pieds


Friday, April 30, 2021, Auteuil Racecourse (Paris). - On the way to the Alain du Breil 4yo Hurdle (G1), Hermès Baie (Crillon) easily won the last prep race as he flew over the Amadou 4yo Hurdle (Gr2), defeating the coming back Raffles Face (Authorized) and Gallipoli (Gleneagles), the only ones able to somehow challenge him on a very soft ground.

Hermès Baie had made some impression for his own come back in the d’Indy 4yo Hurdle (G3), beating Haut les Cœurs (Saddler Maker), who has since won the Pépinvast 4yo Hurdle (G3) by nine lengths! The form will be tested in three weeks time for the big one.

Ludmika (Murmure), Hermès Baie's dam, had a short but good career with Yannick Fertillet as she ran three times over the flat and won twice, finishing once 3rd. At stud, she gave 7 foals and Hermès Baie is amongst the best Crillons she foaled, such as Dress Baie (Crillon), four times a winner. The last full sister to Hermès Baie, also bred by André-Jean Belloir, is named I Love My Baie and she's in the Goffs Doncaster Sale, le Spring Store on May 17th. Ludmika met a new fiancé since then, with two Tiger Groom foals.
