Grand Prix de Paris for MGSP Highland Chief


Co-trainer Paul Cole | Tattersalls

Highland Chief (Ire) (Gleneagles {Ire}), a homebred for Mrs. Fitri Hay, is pointing toward the Sept. 13 G1 Prix de Paris, co-trainer Oliver Cole announced on Monday. Second in the G3 Gordon S. at Goodwood on July 30 and second again-this time in the G2 Great Voltigeur S. at York on Aug. 19-the bay will be supplemented to the French Classic, rather than taking on Great Voltigeur winner Pyledriver (GB) (Harbour Watch {GB}) again.

“The plan is to go to the Grand Prix de Paris with him,” said Cole. “You can never say not, but I doubt it [of a start in the St Leger]. If Pyledriver is probably going to the St Leger, it's probably best for us to go to Paris. We're going to have to supplement him–he's not in at the moment. We'll have to prepare him again to see if he's on song for the day, but it's a pencilled-in plan anyway.”
