DAGOBOY (Diamond Boy) extended his unbeaten record to three when taking the Prix de Bourbon-Busset over hurdles at Vichy on Sunday.
Successful on debut as a three-year-old, the now five-year-old made an overdue return last month and impressed with a winning margin of 11 lengths. Bertrand Lestrade kept the ride on Sunday and positioned him to track the leaders until asserting at halfway. Picking up the pace along the back straight, he ran on well when challenged at the final flight and scored by two and a half lengths.
Trained by Guillaume Macaire for Haras de Montgermont and breeder Olivier Tricot, Dagoboy is a half-brother to the Listed-placed Bathilde.
