York Next For Latrobe

Friday, 20th July 2018

Australian-owned Irish Derby winner Latrobe is set to make his next appearance in either the Gr2 Great Voltigeur Stakes (12 furlongs) or the Gr1 Juddmonte International (10 furlongs) at York next month, reports Sky Sports. Trained by Joseph O'Brien on behalf of leviathan Australian owner Lloyd Williams, Latrobe (Camelot-Question Times, by Shamardal) showed his class when landing the Curragh classic on 30 June. "We haven't made any definite plans, but I think the most likely scenario is he'll go to York for something there," said O'Brien. "Whether he goes for the Voltigeur or the Juddmonte, we'll see nearer the time. He'd have a penalty in the Voltigeur, which wouldn't be ideal, but we won't make a decision on which race he'll run in until we have to make it. He seems in good form." Williams, who teamed up with the younger O'Brien to win last year's Melbourne Cup with Rekindling, has left the door ajar on Latrobe following a similar path, but O'Brien said it was "too far away" to discuss the Melbourne Cup.
