Maven has drawn post 1 for Sunday's Grand Prix de France at the Vincennes racetrack in Paris. The 6-year-old mare will be driven by Johnny Takter, the older brother of trainer Jimmy Takter.
Thirteen trotters will compete in the 1 5/16-miles (2,100 meters) Grand Prix de France, including Up And Quick, who captured the Prix d'Amerique at Vincennes on Jan. 25. In that race, Maven and driver Yannick Gingras, away slowly from the "volt start," were making a move around the final turn when the trotter made a break. That race followed a seventh and 11th in her two previous attempts in recent weeks in France.
Here is the field for the Grand Prix de France, which carries a purse of 400,000 euro (approximately $457,000 US):
1. Maven (Johnny Takter)
2. Up And Quick (Jean Michel Bazire)
3. Timoko (Bjorn Goop)
4. Texas Charm (Julien Dubois)
5. Vanika du Ruel (Franck Anne)
6. Uhla du Val (Cedric Megissier)
7. Noras Bean (Stefan Söderqvist)
8. Napoleon Bar (Pierre Vercruysse)
9. Tiego d'Etang (Charles Bigeon)
10. Severino (Damien Bonne)
11. Linda di Casei (Alessandro Gocciadoro)
12. Solvato (Orjan Kihlström)
13. Kadett CD (Domonik Locqueneux)
