The His Excellency Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al Thani-bred and owned INDE secured his first win of the season when taking the Prix de Gabaston, a Claiming race over a mile, at Pau, France on Saturday 26 October 2019. Settled towards the rear in the early stages, the gelding son of the Haras de Bouquetot stallion Olympic Glory, easily took the advantage inside the final 300 metres, with Guillaume Trolley de Prevaux in the saddle, to score for his trainer Jean-Claude Rouget. INDE finished two and a half lengths ahead of the I. Lopez Santiago-trained GRISGRISES (RIP VAN WINKLE) who was ridden by Borja Fayos Martin. The Jc. Cerqueira Germano-trained TRECE (SLADE POWER) finished third under Ricardo Sousa Ferreira.
