 Prix d'Amerique 2019

2019 Prix d'Amérique

January 27, 2019 - Trotting, 2.700 meters, Paris-Vincennes

Preview: November 2, 2019

The countdown for the 2019 Prix d'Amérique will start with the Prix De Bretagne on November 18. But whatever will happen in the upcoming preparation races, the big rematch between Bold Eagle and title holder Readly Express is highly probable on the first Sunday in January. Actually it was Propulsion who dominated the trotting world lately. Most likely he starts a breeding career soon and will not compete in Paris, so serious rivals for the two sons of Ready Cash are hard to find at present.

Readly Express won more or less every race he could until his 2018 Prix d’Amérique triumph. Afterwards he started breeding and did not get fit in time for the Elitloppet. His comeback after a half year lay-off was disappointing. He got beaten by Propulsion in the Åby Stora Pris, finished even fifth in the Sundsvall Open Trot, his worst placement ever. Meanwhile things go better again, finally he passed the line as first in the Svenskt Mästerskap. However, Readly Express does not have to be in top form before the 2019 Prix d’Amérique, and that is the defined aim.

Bold Eagle triumphed in the Prix d’Amérique 2016 and 2017, had to accept his most painful defeat when was narrowly beaten by Readly Express in last year's Amérique. He suffered even more humiliation when got disqualified in the first heat of the 2018 Elitloppet afterwards. Anyway, Bold Eagle won all three starts since, including, after a break of three months, the Grand Prix du Centre-Est on October 28. His next race will probably be the Prix de Bretagne on November 18.
