Group 1 winner Big Rock (Fr) (Rock Of Gibraltar {Ire}) and 12 other Yeguada Centurion horses have transferred to the stable of Maurizio Guarnieri as of Thursday evening, Jour de Galop reported. The baker's dozen were formerly listed in training with Christopher Head.

Speaking to the French publication, Head said, “I was notified Thursday morning of the departure of the horses for Maurizio Guarnieri's stable, with transport planned for the evening. I savored every minute spent with the Yeguada Centurion horses. I [will] only have good memories of this valuable experience for the rest of my training career.”

Big Rock, a homebred for Leopoldo Fernandez Pujals's operation, skipped home a winner of the G1 Queen Elizabeth II S. on QIPCO British Champions Day in October. He holds an entry in the May 18 G1 Al Shaqab Lockinge S. at Newbury.

This move follows the removal of high-class filly and multiple Group 1 winner Blue Rose Cen (Ire) (Churchill {Ire}) and several other Yeguada Centurion horses to group-class trainer Guarnieri in January.
