Dewhurst Next Port of Call for Etonian


Richard Hannon, the trainer of Etonian | Tattersalls

Undefeated G3 Solario S. hero Etonian (Ire) (Olympic Glory {Ire}) is aiming for the G1 Dewhurst S. at Newmarket on Oct. 10. Trained by Richard Hannon, the bay colt got off the mark on debut at Sandown on July 23 and followed up with a 1 1/4-length win in the Solario there on Aug. 23.

“The thought at the moment is to go for the Dewhurst,” said owner Julie Wood. “It is lovely to have a horse capable of performing at this level again as it has been a while. He keeps it all for his races, but he is a real trier. We thought he was nice straight away, but until they get to the track you never know, and he has now done it twice now. Obviously we would like to finish off this season as good as we can, but the dream is the G1 2000 Guineas next year. He is a lovely horse to look forward to.”
