Highland Reel To Target French Classic

Friday, 1st May 2015

Meanwhile, highly regarded Ballydoyle colt Highland Reel will also miss the English Classic to concentrate on the Poule d'Essai des Poulains (French 2,000 Guineas) on Sunday week. Speaking on Wednesday, trainer Aiden O'Brien said: "Highland Reel won't run as we're looking towards the French 2,000 Guineas with him." By Coolmore's champion sire Galileo, Highland Reel is out of the Gr1-placed Australian mare Hveger (Danehill), a full-sister to multiple Gr1 winner Elvstroem and a half-sister to fellow multiple Gr1 scorer Haradasun from Australian Oaks heroine Circles Of Gold. This is also the family of Starspangledbanner, the sire of The Wow Signal.
