Sunday, April 2, 2023, Auteuil Racecourse (Paris) - The 6/5 favourite Juntos Ganamos (Martaline) started in the €150,000 Fleuret 4yo Chase (Gr3) with an unbeaten record in two chases. Winner of the Congress 3yo Chase (Gr2) at the end of last year, and the Duc d'Anjou 4yo Chase (Gr3) on his return this season, the representative of Margaux Cottin, Gérard Augustin-Normand, David Cottin, Écurie Michel Rizieri, Écurie Thomas Sivadier and Stéphanie Nigge carried four kilos more weight against eight rivals, including five he had beaten last time out. Leading the race, he was briefly challenged between the last two obstacles by a determined Goliath du Rheu (Castle du Berlais), but despite the extra weight, the AQPS bred by the Bryant estate dominated once again without fault to win by nearly a length over his rival, while Okkido (Martaline) finished strongly in third, five lengths behind, for his seasonal return.

With more than €245,000 in his account and a clean record chasing seven weeks before the Ferdinand Dufaure 4yo Chase (Gr1), Juntos Ganamos is establishing himself at the top of his generation.

Juntos Ganamos was bred by Magalen Bryant, who sold him last May for €45,000 to Highflyer Bloodstock. His yearling brother by Saint des Saints was sold for €85,000 last November to SAS Saubouas Bloodstock in Deauville.
