Interview par @ThibaudLst
He won the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe last year with TORQUATOR TASSO and will ride MENDOCINO this year for his wife, Sarah Steinberg! René Piechulek tells us some words about his chances in the race!
-You are going to ride MENDOCINO and you manage to win Grosser Preis von Baden in front of TORQUATOR TASSO, last arc winner with you. What did you feel? It’s something special no?
I feel specially nothing. After the race in Baden-Baden, when i realized that i beat Torquator Tasso, it was a little bit surreal.
-How was last work of MENDOCINO?
The last work was very good, as his work before Grosser Preis von Baden.
-The horse seems like ParisLongchamp and has nice races on this track. Are you confident for Sunday? Do you think you can beat again TORQUATOR TASSO?
I don’t know if I can beat him again. It’s a completely different race here!
-Your five favorites horses of this amazing race?
My 5 favorites are: ALPINISTA, VADENI, LUXEMBOURG, TORQUATOR TASSO and ONESTO!
-Will you have others great rides during this Week-End? With good chances?
I have 3 others rides (ERMELIE, VENICE and ZEFANIA) during this weekend. Some nice rides who will love the soft ground and could be interesting to follow.
Thank you very much to RENE PIECHULEK for his time!
