Ballydoyle Lines up Breeders' Cup Entries


Virtually anybody following American racing already knows that Irish Champion Stakes winner and multiple Group 1 globetrotter So You Think is Breeders' Cup bound, but what you may not know is the significant Ballydoyle team shipping stateside for the world championships.


So You Think trades at a competitive price for the 2011 Breeders' Cup Classic and he is sitting alongside Tizway just a step down from betting favourite Uncle Mo and super-filly Havre De Grace. Still remaining in or near the top-tier contenders, So You Think is awaiting his dirt debut over the Churchill Downs surface.

Today marks the pre-entry stage for the Breeders' Cup and So You Think was last spotted trading at a 7.2 price tag while his stablemate Await The Dawn trades at 15.5 ante post.

Await The Dawn, despite being bred for a dirt surface, is also co-entered in the 2011 Breeders' Cup Turf – which actually looks an equally interesting race with a number of high-profile shippers set to offer up the most challenges.

Aidan O'Brien has also confirmed that the likes of St Nicholas Abbey will be appearing in the Breeders' Cup Turf while Zoffany is entered for the Breeders' Cup Mile and will be looking to tackle Goldikova. Harisons Cave is set for the Breeders' Cup Marathon while Daddy Long Legs – a stellar two-year-old in Britain this year – has been entered in the Juvenile Turf and the Juvenile. An outing over dirt would make Daddy Long Legs a very interesting, and likely high-odds, selection.

Learn and Wrote, along with Crusade, are also entered in the Juvenile Turf.

A strong contingent of females is also set to run this year for Ballydoyle with Up and Homecoming Queen both co-entered in the Juvenile Fillies Turf and the Juvenile Fillies.
