DABIRSIM – the Champion.
Christophe Ferland made a remarkable entry in the circle of Gr.1 winner trainers thanks to the champion Dabirsim. This foal which was purchased only at the price of 30.000€ at the Arqana yearling sales marked the year 2011. Indeed, he remained undefeated in 5 races and won the the European two-year-old title.
Dabirsim won his debut easily – by 10 lengths – and franked this with a second victory in La Teste, again at 1200 meters. Sent to Deauville for the Prix Cabourg Gr.3, where he showed an usual turn of foot to defeat his competitors easily. Three weeks later, he floored the opposition in the first European Gr.1 for the younger generation – the prix Morny, which is one of the most coveted races of the program. His devastating acceleration left the respected Family One three lengths behind.
On Arc de Triomphe Day, Dabirsim made it perfect at the mythical Longchamp racecourse by realizing the difficult double Prix Morny – Prix Jean- Luc Lagardère. Last of all three hundred meters from the winning post, he sneaked up to the rail and achieved a maximum speed that would be remembered. Dabirsim won by three – quarters of a length from Sofast, in the Wertheimers’ brothers’ colors.
