Sixty years ago, John Fitzgerald Kennedy became the 35th President of the United States, sending the first man into space, the former Soviet Union, Yuri Gagarin. On the sports side, Frenchman Jack Anquette won the Tour de France for the second time, and the Fran்கois Brohier won the… 60th edition of the Brix de Amரிக்கric, thanks to 5-year-old Machina.
While the event celebrates its 100th edition on Sunday, January 31, the oldest winner of this World Trading Championship recalled last Sunday in January 1961 at the Hippodrome de Vincennes: “We started slowly. Before approaching us, halfway up, climb. At the finish line, Machina finished at full speed to easily pick up the statue of Tornis and his driver, Sergio Briganti, Typhosis. Very happy, I did not hesitate to raise my whip as a sign of victory. “

But in her 80% chance, she will be 25m.
