From the Keeneland Media Team:
George Turner and Clipper Logistics’ Suedois (FR), who pulled a 9-1 upset in the 2017 running of the Shadwell Turf Mile (G1), arrived at Keeneland’s quarantine barn Sunday at 7:15 a.m. along with three other horses from Europe.
Trained by David O’Meara, Suedois is expected to pass the entry box Wednesday for Saturday’s $1 million Shadwell Turf Mile, a Breeders’ Cup Challenge race that earns the winner a fees-paid berth into the $2 million TVG Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) to be run Nov. 2 at Santa Anita.
Two other Shadwell probables were on the plane with Suedois: Godolphin’s Vintager (GB), trained by Charles Appleby, and Haven’t A Pot and Richard Foden’s Robin of Navan (FR), trained by Harry Dunlop.
Also arriving Sunday morning was Mr. P.K. Siu’s Indian Blessing (GB). Trained by Ed Walker, Indian Blessing is expected to run in Saturday’s $400,000 First Lady (G1), a Win and You’re In race for the $2 million Maker’s Mark Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf (G1) on Nov. 2 at Santa Anita.
The horses should clear isolation early Tuesday and go to the track that morning.
