Pornichet had already planned a big Christmas party for its meeting on Sunday, December 18. Given the magnificent footballing circumstances, the racecourse broadcasts the World Cup final on a giant screen in the grand hall of the stands. What a wonderful opportunity to come and enjoy the event all together on a racecourse during the races. With Santa Claus as a bonus during half-time!
The final of the 2022 Football World Cup, a magnificent poster between France and Argentina, will obviously be at the heart of the festive device in the colors of Christmas offered this Sunday, December 18 by the Hippodrome de Pornichet. The meeting starts at 4:00 p.m., right at the time of the kick-off whistle, but the activities will have already started on the racecourse. The program of festivities will be as follows:
- Doors open: 2:30 p.m.
- Animations: Introduction to manual trades by the association l’Outil en Main (charming, floral art, mosaic, etc.), drawing competition, make-up
- Pony ride from 3 p.m.
- Music: gospel interludes between races from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- Start of operations: 3:38 p.m.
- 1st Prix France Stallion race: 4:08 p.m.
- Around 4:45 p.m. / 5:00 p.m.: arrival of Santa Claus
- 3rd course: Santa Claus Prize
- 8th course: Christmas Grand Prix
Sportingly speaking, we can no doubt expect a new surge of German candidates, to which Joel Boisnard seems the best equipped to resist. 7 coaches will be present in 7 of the 8 courses with 11 conditions in total. Ralf Rohne, Horst Blume, Henk Grewe, Markus Geisler, Marian-Falk Weissmeier and Marcel Weiss (the man of Torquator Tasso) cover more than 1000 kilometers to participate with preponderant chances in the Prix France Sire (Hadewin, Riak), Christmas Garlands (Breville), Santa Claus (Jackson, Mashuk, Darlington), PMU Paris Sport (Freccetta) of the Sprites (Sabsevar), reindeer (Aurelia Aurita), Christmas Grand Prix (Princess Laia).
Offered under handicap formula, the PMU Le Paris Sport Prize brings together quality 2-year-olds. up to 34.5 value for solid Arown, who won at Les Sables d’Olonne on July 26th. But in the Prix du Père Noël, the German 3-year-old Anistouconsistent at home and having just finished 3rd from a young girl at Deauville, is undoubtedly the meeting horse.
Finally, note the presence as a trainer of Jean-Philippe Borodajkofamous trotting professional, who was supplemented in this same Prix du Père Noël the 3-year-old beginner The Wukair Fairy. This will be his second runner at a gallop.
