His £ 265,000 purchase Txope strolled to an easy victory at Deauville in his black and pink silks.
The striker is a big fan of racing and has spent hundreds of thousands of euros on talented horses in France.
He once had a runner in a French classic in the form of Natsukashi and Txope seems to have the talent to reach a similar level.
Txope was just second in his first two outings and coach Philippe Decouz will now have his eyes on bigger and better targets.
Griezmann is a regular in sales and was clearly watching from Spain for his horse to win.
He took to Twitter to celebrate the £ 15,000 win.
The World Cup winner also tasted success with Group 3 hero Tornibush who now presents himself as a lucrative stallion.
The 30-year-old fell in love with the sport thanks to his old man who lives in Macon, Burgundy, and that’s where the striker keeps most of his rope.
Griezmann has been the owner since 2017 and currently has 12 race horses and nine more competing in the trot.
And, like any owner, he’s very proud to name them – he gave one the title Princesa, the nickname of his eldest daughter, Mia.
Real Madrid star Alvaro Odriozola is another footballer who is making waves on the racing scene.
