Deauville Legend On Target For Melbourne Cup Bid


Deauville Legend |

Deauville Legend (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), a dual group winner in the UK this season, is firmly on course for the G1 Melbourne Cup Down Under in November and enters quarantine “a week on Monday” according to trainer James Ferguson. Second in Royal Ascot's King George V S. in June, the 3-year-old gelding franked that form with a narrow victory in the July 7 G3 Bahrain Trophy S. at Newmarket. Runner-up to the subsequently G1 Cazoo St Leger-placed New London (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}) in Goodwood's G3 Gordon S. on July 28, the K K Ho colourbearer rebounded to win the G2 Great Voltigeur S. at York in mid-August.

“He's still on course for Melbourne,” said Ferguson. “He goes into quarantine a week on Monday and I think the form is working out very nicely. It is straight to Flemington.”
