‘Breeze’ Eyes Diamond Jubilee

Librisa Breeze | Racing Post

Trainer Dean Ivory hopes Group 1 winner Librisa Breeze (GB) (Mount Nelson {GB}) can give him another day to remember at Royal Ascot a week on Saturday in the G1 Diamond Jubilee S. Having provided Ivory with his first Group 1 winner in last year’s British Champions Sprint, the 6-year-old ran off the board in the G1 Al Quoz Sprint on Dubai World Cup night in March.

“We are going to the Diamond Jubilee and we will see where we go from there,” said Ivory of the Tony Bloom-owned gelding. “It is not long until Ascot now and everything seems good at home. He is a very serious horse. Winning the Champions Sprint was one of best days I’ve ever had. Having finished second in the [G1] July Cup twice with Tropics, to me that was like winning a Group 1, so his [Librisa Breeze’s] victory at Ascot in some ways felt like my second one.”
