Yann Barberot said that life didn’t change much during lockdown at his yard in Deauville and is currently enjoying a good start to this very unusual season.
He sits currently in 12th position in the French trainers’ table and said: “Each year I’m improving my position, so I can’t complain. I enjoyed a good start to the season despite the health crisis.
“The summer meeting at Deauville has started well too. I haven’t won a race yet, but the horses are finishing in the first three and are running well.”
With the unbeaten Dick Whittington aimed at Saturday’s Prix Hocquart, live on Sky Sports Racing, a victory might be on the cards sooner than he thinks.
Yann kindly told Liz Price of attheraces.com what plans he has for his team this summer.
