RP Racing's Big Evs (Ire) (Blue Point {Ire}) will make his next start in the Nov. 3 GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint at Santa Anita, trainer Mick Appleby confirmed on Tuesday. The colt has won three of five career starts, including the G2 Flying Childers S., G3 Molecomb S. and Listed Windsor Castle S. at Royal Ascot, and has banked £180,665.

“He's in good form, we've just freshened him up a bit and he seems in good order,” said Appleby. “Hopefully he stays that way until he goes, he flies out on Oct. 26. He's got to have 48 hours in quarantine then he'll be able to go out on track two or three times before the race.”

“We're going to take him for a racecourse gallop so we can run him around a bend, obviously he's never raced around a bend before but I don't think it'll be an issue,” Appleby said. “He's got to do a bit of stalls work with a bell but I think we're going to do that when he's out there so he can get used to the stalls there.

“He's doing very well and hopefully it's all systems go.”
