Live In The Dream Settling In Well In Advance Of Woodford

Live In The Dream |

Breeders' Cup qualifier Live In The Dream (Ire) (Prince Of Lir {Ire}), who won the G1 Nunthorpe S. in August, is doing well prior to an intended start in the Oct. 7 GII Woodford S. at Keeneland.

“He's very well, he's out of quarantine and he took the travelling very well,” trainer Adam West said on Tuesday. “You can't do too much in quarantine, he had a little canter on the track for the first time yesterday and he's breezing on the grass today, then it'll be a light blow with Sean Kirrane on Thursday.

“We got the draw last night and we're very excited to be drawn in stall two, which I think will be helpful. There are some good horses in it but Caravel (Mizzen Mast) hasn't declared which is a bit of a relief.

“We should know what our sectionals are and how our form holds up in real life against the Americans on Saturday.”

Owned by Steve and Jolene De'Lemos, the gelding punched his ticket to the GI Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint with a one-length victory in the Nunthorpe over Sunday's G1 Prix de l'Abbaye heroine Highfield Princess (Fr) (Night Of Thunder {Ire}) at York. The Woodford is his first start since.

“He was pretty much ready and raring to go before he went out there, as much as I want to win this race I also want to see him bang on for the Breeders' Cup,” said West.

“I'll be flying out with the jockey tomorrow and the owners and my assistant trainer, so it will be good to get a picture of it for ourselves.”
