Crown Prince Jacques has accompanied mum Princess Charlene to a charity horse racing event in the French Riviera, and the four-year-old has once again stolen the show.
The Princess Charlene of Monaco Prize – Charity Race was held on 19th July and is organised each year at the Cagnes-sur-Mer Racecourse by the Société des Courses de la Côte d’Azur and the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation. In addition to Princess Charlene, the young Prince and his uncle Gareth Wittstock, who also happens to be General Secretary of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, there were a host of sporting celebrities including New Zealand rugby players Duncan Paia’aua, Julian Savea and Liam Justin Messam, Australian cyclist David Tanner and Italian K1 Kickboxing World Champion Federico Vella.
They were there to support the 15 different charities who had a horse entered in the event, which was used to help raise money for their respective causes. They included Fight Aids Monaco, Monaco Red-Cross, Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, Saint Vincent de Paul, and SNSM Menton.
But the winner was a horse named Fantasia de Ligny, who won 10,000€ for the association ‘Children and Future’.
Second place went to Fresh News racing for the French Red-Cross Cagnes-sur-Mer, who won 6,000€, while Fifi Impératrice came in third place for Cœur de Course, with 4,000€ prize money.
The remaining 11 entrants received 3,000€ each.
