Penny's Picnic won his first two starts at Saint-Cloud and here by a cumulative margin of 18 lengths before having to battle in contrasting style when extending his unbeaten tally in the five-furlong Listed Prix la Fleche at Maisons-Laffitte June 8. Fourth in the latter venue's G2 Prix Robert Papin over 1100 meters July 22, he beat only one home on his first attempt at this trip in Deauville's G1 Prix Morny when last seen Aug. 19. Settled just behind the early pace on this comeback, the bay was committed before the furlong pole, and quickly opened up for a convincing success.
