Two options open for Red Verdon

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

Red Verdon trainer Ed Dunlop says there are a few races that could be a possibility in the coming weeks.

The American born horse made a winning start to 2018 after coming through in a minor conditions race at Lingfield in February and has since had three more outings.

The five-year-old then finished fourth in the Betway All-Weather Marathon and was runner-up in both the Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket and the Henry II Stakes at Sandown.

Dunlop is now undecided as to whether he should run in the mile-and-a-half Hardwicke Stakes on June 23 or the slightly longer one mile six-furlong Curragh Cup on July 1.

“We are thinking of running Red Verdon in either the Curragh Cup or the Hardwicke, but we haven’t made a decision which direction we will go yet,” said the Newmarket-based trainer.

“We will stay in the Hardwicke until as late as we can. He has run well on his last two starts, but it is all about the second half of the season for him.”
