Space Traveller has Breeders' Cup on agenda after Leopardstown triumph

Mon 16 Sep 2019

Richard Fahey is keen to give Space Traveller the chance to prove himself at the top table in the Breeders’ Cup Mile at Santa Anita.

A surprise winner of the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot in June, the Bated Breath colt then suffered back-to-back defeats at Goodwood and York.

However, he bounced back to winning ways in the Group Two Boomerang Stakes at Leopardstown on Saturday – and Fahey has earmarked the Grade One contest on November 2 as the end-of-season target for his charge.

Fahey said: “It was a fantastic performance at Leopardstown, and it was just the job. The mile seems to be his trip.

“I was happy to see him win again, because he is a good little horse. I thought he was a fraction unlucky the time before at York, because not everything went right.

“I was led to believe straight after the race that we would get an invite to the Breeders’ Cup. It is a bit up in the air, but I would love to go there.

“He has got that natural speed and travels well, and he would be well suited to the track. Hopefully we can get there with a bit of luck.”
