Roaring Lion Heading for Breeders Cup Classic?

Roaring Lion Heading for Breeders Cup Classic?

Roaring Lion, the Champion three-year-old in wait, could potentially be heading stateside for a tilt at the Breeders’ Cup at Churchill Downs in November.

The Grey, winner of the Eclipse, Juddmonte International and the Irish Champion Stakes, is set to cap off a stellar season in the Champion Stakes at Ascot, which he is best-priced 13/8 favourite for.

However, trainer John Gosden may not draw stumps up for the season there, and may ship him to Kentucky for the prestigious turf race, which would be his first start over a-mile-and-a half.

Gosden is also not ruling out the idea of running Roaring Lion on the dirt at Churchill Downs too, with the Breeders’ Cup Classic being the thought of race if he were to switch to the synthetic surface, which Gosden won in 2008 with Raven’s Pass.

If the ground becomes heavy at Ascot, the American quest would likely be the primary port of call for the grey, and it has been stated he will not run at the Berkshire venue if the ground is bottomless.

Roaring Lion is a best priced 4/1 with 888sport for the Breeders’ Cup Turf and a best priced 16/1 with William Hill for the Classic.
