[Luxus+ Magazine] A look back at the Prix De Diane Longines 2021

On Sunday 20th June, the Longines Prix de Diane was held at the Chantilly racecourse, won by the Irish filly Joan of Arc, ridden by the Basque jockey Ioritz Mendizabal.

 

Trained by Aidan O’Brien, he also saw his colt win the 2021 Qatar Prix du Jockey Club at the beginning of June, again under the saddle of Ioritz Mendizabal.

 

The 47-year-old Ioritz Mendizabal is one of the most experienced jockeys in the field, having won the Qatar Prix du Jockey Club three times, in 2008, 2020 and 2021. However, this is the first time he has won the Prix de Diane Longines.

 

It’s all the result of the morning’s work that is done beforehand. It’s magical for me to ride for Aidan O’Brien and to experience this. In the course, I prepared her well for the final acceleration. I didn’t push, I just accompanied her. At 400 metres from the post, I wasn’t sure I would win because Sibila Spain is a very good filly, but Joan of Arc managed to go for it” , said Ioritz Mendizabal, winner of the 2021 Longines Prix de Diane.
