Americain Repeats Recipe For Success In Prix Kergolay


Americain will have one last start in the French Prix Kergolay before travelling to Australia for the 2011 Melbourne Cup.

Last year’s Melbourne Cup winner Americain will attempt to win back-to-back Prix Kergolays in France this Sunday August 21, 2011, before travelling to Australia to defend his Cup title.

The seven-year-old entire won his last start in the Listed Prix De Reux after an unsuccessful northern hemisphere spring campaign in April.

Part-owner Colleen Bamford said that Americain had progressed well since his one length victory in the Prix De Reux on August 2, 2011.

“We got an email yesterday with some photos and he had his last good gallop (on Wednesday morning) before the race on Sunday and he looked amazing,” Ms Bamford said.

“We’d had a little bit of concern with him earlier in the year, he just didn’t quite look right, but now he looks just like he did last year.

“He’s really bloomed and we’re expecting that he’ll run really well on Sunday.

“He won the Prix Kergorlay last year before coming to Australia so we’re hoping that he can do that again this year.”

The race will be Americain’s last before he travels to Australia for the 2011 Melbourne Cup.

The Dynaformer entire has also been nominated for both the $2.5 million 2011 Caulfield Cup and $3 million 2011 Cox Plate.
