Love in Good Order For King George


Aidan O'Brien | Scoop Dyga

Dual Classic heroine Love (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}), who won the G1 Prince of Wales's S.  at Royal Ascot in June, is in good form in advance of the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. on July 24. The Coolmore partners runner claimed the G1 QIPCO 1000 Guineas, G1 Investec Oaks, and G1 Yorkshire Oaks in a three-for-three campaign in 2020.

“The plan at the moment is that we're looking at running Love in the King George,” trainer Aidan O'Brien said from The Curragh. “Mogul (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) and Broome (Ire) (Australia {GB}) are also there, but Love is the most likely to run. Something else could run but I'm not sure just yet. Everything has gone well with her since Ascot.”

Another Coolmore partners-owned dual Classic winner, St Mark's Basilica (Fr) (Siyouni {Fr}) is a possible starter in for the G1 Juddmonte International S. at York on Aug. 18 and the G1 Irish Champion S. at Leopardstown on Sept. 11. The colt won the G1 French 2000 Guineas and the G1 Prix du Jockey Club earlier this year before winning the G1 Coral-Eclipse S. at Sandown on July 3.

Added O'Brien, “”The lads haven't really decided yet what they want to do but York and Leopardstown would certainly be races we'll be looking at. We'll probably know more in another week where we are going.”
