ALMANDINE has the particularity to have been born way overdue.It's incredible but she was 11 weeks late, 76 days in fact. She was due on the 4 february and her dam had her foaling on the 27 April !
He dam JAKOSIE had a pregnancy over nearly 14 months. JAKOSIE, daughter of the Thoroughbred Rakosi,was a good winner in CSO (1m40), ISO 140.
