Peslier Riding Prix de l'Abbaye Winner In Champion Stakes

Friday, 19th October 2012

Champion French jockey "Olivier Peslier has been handed the mount aboard [Gr1] Prix de l'Abbaye winner Wizz Kid [Whipper-Lidanski, by Soviet Star]" in Saturday's Gr2 Champions Sprint, reports racingpost.com. Riding the Robert Collett-trained speedster "for the first time" as a result of regular jockey Gerald Mosse being in Australia, Peslier was cautiously optimistic of Wizz Kid's chances, saying, "I rode her work this morning to get to know her and everything went well… She won the Abbaye when she was the only French filly against all the English, now she must try and do the same on their turf. The ground will be fine for her but it will be very competitive".
