Postponed Works Towards Arc


Postponed | Racing Post

G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe favourite Postponed (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) pleased trainer Roger Varian in a work ahead of that Oct. 2 Chantilly assignment on Saturday morning.

“Postponed is in great form,” Varian said. “He worked this morning and worked well.”

Postponed rides a six-race win streak into the Arc, which includes four Group 1s, most recently the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic, G1 Coronation Cup and G1 Juddmonte International. The 5-year-old entire has drawn a lot of attention to the Varian yard this year, something the trainer says he is savoring.

“We don’t mind everyone asking about him,” Varian said. “The day we don’t have a favourite for the Arc is when we will be upset that we are not getting the attention. It is a nice position to be in.”

“He is in good form and where he needs to be with eight days to go,” Varian added. “Fingers crossed that it all goes well between now and next weekend.”
