Saeed bin Suroor is considering options for Dubai World Cup hero Thunder Snow on the way to the Breeders’ Cup Classic.
The four-year-old, who has won a Group One in all three of his racing seasons, produced a superb front-running performance at Meydan in March to shock American favourite West Coast, and has since enjoyed a well-deserved break.
His trainer said: “The horse had a hard race in Dubai, but he is doing well and the Breeders’ Cup Classic is the long-term aim. We’ll try to find one or two races for him beforehand.
“The Jacques le Marois is a possible and the Belmont Jockey Club Gold Cup, then hopefully on to the Classic, as that is the main objective.”
Bin Suroor also had news of Benbatl, winner of the Dubai Turf on World Cup night.
He said: “Benbatl is doing well since winning the Grade One in Dubai.
“We will get him ready for Royal Ascot, and he will go for the Queen Anne, as a stiff mile will suit him.”
