Thundering Blue Breezes Home In Stockholm Cup

David Menuisier had one his greatest days as a trainer on the weekend when Thundering Blue on his first outing outside of the United Kingdom saw him land the Group 3 Stockholm Cup in Sweden.

The two length victory saw connections look towards another race day outside of his homeland with the next idea for the grey horse to go to Canada and compete in the Candian International at Woodbine where he is currently 9/1.

If that changes and the Menuisier team want to go back and try him in England he is 25/1 for the Group 1 Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot at the end of the flat season.

Fran Berry on board the winning Thundering Blue broke out of the stalls well with just the only the other British runner in the field a head of him in Crowned Eagle trained by Marco Botti and part owned by Southampton striker Charlie Austin.

The Strong field of 12 runners made there way steadily up to around three furlongs out and that is where the grey horse made his move picking off the early leaders and coming home easily to take the victory to score a british 1-2 in Sweden with Crowned Eagle finishing runner up.

Bro Park showed there appreciation with a wide response of noise and applause for the English raider and Fran Berry who gave the horse a superb ride has started to build a nice partnership after riding the five year old in the Juddmonte International and finishing third.

Sunday's win was this Geldings first win over the distance of 1 mile and a half on his second attempt of the trip where stamina did not look an issue what so ever.
