Australia Attempts Derby Double On Sunday
Following overnight declarations, recent Gr1 Epsom Derby hero Australia will attempt to emulate fellow Ballydoyle alumni Camelot who completed the English-Irish Derby double two years ago. The choicely bred son of Galileo and champion mare Ouija Board will face just 6 competitors – 3 from his own stable – in the 12 furlong event for 3YO colts. Among them is Kingston Hill, the Atzeni Varian-trained Mastercraftsman colt who finished runner-up to Australia at Epsom. Drawn barrier 5, Australia will start odds-on with bookmakers.
