Making his second appearance on an American racetrack, Hamelin justified the confidence trainer Motion has put in him by scoring a creditable second place on the unfancied Angegreen in the Very One Stakes, held at Gulfstream Park.

The race was won comfortably by Starformer.

Accompanied by his partner, the experienced Jules Susini protégé has shown he means business in Florida, further raising the stock of French jockeys in American racing.
