King George Next For Wonderful Tonight


Wonderful Tonight | Scoop Dyga

Christopher Wright's Group 1 winner Wonderful Tonight (Fr) (Le Havre {Ire}), who won the G2 Hardwicke S. last out at Royal Ascot, is targeting the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. at Ascot on July 24. Scratched out of this past Saturday's G1 Coral-Eclipse, she defeated Sunday's G1 Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud hero Broome (Ire) (Australia {GB}) in the Hardwicke. In 2020, the filly scored in the G1 Prix de Royallieu at ParisLongchamp on Arc Day, and doubled down at that level in the QIPCO British Champions Fillies & Mares S. at Ascot on QIPCO British Champions Day on Oct. 17.

Trainer David Menuisier said, “The King George is the plan as long as we have the weather on our side. That is what we'll be aiming to do. She's great, she's in really good form. I couldn't be more pleased with her.”
