by Dubaiforum

Metropolitan and Alexis Pouchin staged a stunning upset at ParisLongchamp by winning the Emirates Poule d’Essai des Poulains, leaving Dancing Gemini’s late surge in vain. Trained by Mario Baratti, Metropolitan stayed close to the pace set by Orne and made a strong move at the perfect moment to secure the victory.

Dancing Gemini, trained by Roger Teal, made a valiant effort but couldn’t catch up to Metropolitan’s strong finish. Despite the disappointment of missing out on a first Classic win, Teal remains positive about Dancing Gemini’s future potential.

With entries for both the Betfred Derby at Epsom and the Prix du Jockey Club at Chantilly, Teal has a lot to consider for Dancing Gemini’s next race. Teal expressed pride in Dancing Gemini’s performance and hinted at a possible big day ahead for the talented colt.

On the other hand, Metropolitan’s owners are considering Royal Ascot for the champion after his impressive Classic victory. Part-owner Peter Bradley expressed his delight at Metropolitan’s performance and hinted at future plans for the talented winner.

Overall, it was an exciting and unexpected race at ParisLongchamp, with both Metropolitan and Dancing Gemini showcasing their potential in the world of horse racing.
