Ooh La La Monsieur Carroll

I'm not sure if Tony Carroll can speak fluent French but he is well versed with the francs to pound exchange rate after sending his talented two-year-old filly - Dijarvo - to Maisons-Laffitte on the 9th June to win the Prix La Fleche (Listed) race over 5f on good to soft ground. Ridden by David Probert, she broke smartly, raced in second, and quickened to win by three-quarters of a length. With win price money of over £23,000 (lots of francs) Carroll will be searching for further exploits. Tres Bon.
