ANIEL (PLANTEUR) scored for the second time in his racing career in the colours of Khalifa bin Mohammed Al Attiyah at Deauville on Tuesday 20 August 2019. The 3-year-old colt, who is trained by Simone Brogi in Pau, won the Prix d’Isigny, with Maxime Guyon in the saddle, by a head in front of the Daniel-Yves Treves-owned and JC. Rouget-trained SALINA (PEDRO THE GREAT), who was ridden by Coralie Pacaut. The Johnston Racing Ltd-owned and Mark Johnston-trained TICKLISH (DALAKHANI), was a further half length behind in third under Mickael Barzalona.

The chestnut colt sat towards the rear in this 1900-meter race on the all-weather surface before coming with his run halfway down the straight. He quickly caught the leaders under a decisive ride from Maxime Guyon to win securely despite the small margin. This was a claiming race and ANIEL was subsequently claimed after the race and will now change colours.
