Grand Prix d’Amerique, Face Time Bourbon cerca il bis (come Varenne) – Corriere.it

The petty superstition plays against the formidable team trident (formed by the French-born trotter Face Time Bourbon with indigenous teammates Vivid Wise As e Tony Gio) because – in a century of the race coveted even by very large international teams never even managed to participate in it – only three owners, like the controversial entrepreneur from Castellammare di Stabia today, qualified three horses in the same year: and for none of them (French art dealer Daniel Wildenstein, owner of the Pizza chain Pino Lucien Urano, and Swedish pharmaceutical magnate Bengt Agerup) has ever won that year.

With 11 Grand Prix dominated and 2.2 million collected, the champion of Bivans (and, as minority shareholders, of the breeder Renato Bruni and of the Swiss Pierre Pilarski, licensee in France of many McDonald’s fast food restaurants) finished his training in a curious way: to the sea, on the beach of Cabourg after the snow had frozen the 25 hectares of the center of his trainer Sebastien Guarato.

On track today at 3.15 pm (live on UnireSat-Sky220) also a fourth qualified Italian, Victor Ferm: the dream come true (as owner) of a spectator, Massimo Passoni, who for 35 years in a row has not lacked an edition of the Prix in Paris d’Amerique.
