Winner of the Mahab Al Shimaal (G3) at Meydan on Super Saturday, Hong Kong’s Rich Tapestry has been given a fairly unusual aim for late 2014: the Breeders’ Cup Sprint. The Michael Chang trainee, a known bleeder, has just one loss on a non-grass surface when less than a length behind Sterling City in the Dubai Golden Shaheen (G1) in March. The appearance would mark the second non-traditional overseas runner the Breeders’ Cup has claimed in recent days following Variety Club’s dominant win in the Champions Mile (G1) at Sha Tin.
Paul Haigh picks-up the story for Thoroughbred Racing Commentary, in which his trainer claims Rich Tapestry would be medicated with the anti-bleeder drug Lasix. Click HERE to read it!
