“Be generous and above all stay at home. In a message posted on social networks on Sunday at the end of the day, Jean-Michel Bazire, the no. 1 in French trotting, appears at home, dressed in a white jumpsuit which he usually wears as a driver during the summer season. This combination has been on auction since Monday at 6 p.m. on SportAidons, the solidarity platform launched a few weeks ago by handball player Cyril Dumoulin. The objective? Raise funds and thus come to the aid of the nursing staff confronted with the coronavirus crisis. And the combination of JMB completely fulfills its role since its price has crossed the thousand euros mark in less than thirty minutes of sale (it ends Wednesday at 6 pm).
Jean-Michel Bazire for SportAidons:
Before Jean-Michel Bazire, other racing pros had launched on SportAidons. Vincent Cheminaud proposed the saddle of his debut, like Gaëtan Masure, who added his lead carpet (these two items were sold for 470 euros). As for Aurélien Lemaitre, the jockey of Freddy Head, he put on sale the racing boots with which he signed his first Group success in 2015.
Vincent Cheminaud announces the sale of one of his saddles:
Original idea, a projection of the stallion The Gray Gatsby went on sale until Monday evening. A few hours before the end of its sale, its price was over 3,500 euros, one of the most important auctions since the launch of SportAidons. 9 years old, The Gray Gatsby is known for his pretty gray dress, but also and above all for his sports performances since he won our Prix du Jockey Club (Gr. I) in 2014.
