Breeders’ Cup: Wes Ward keen to provide Golden Pal time after Royal Ascot nightmare in King’s Stand Stakes

Golden Pal

Golden Pal, billed by fitness instructor Wes Ward as the ‘fastest steed in the world’, suffered a mishap at Royal Ascot as rider Irad Ortiz Jr was left puzzled by beginning guidelines; Nunthorpe Stakes at York a feasible target for Golden Pal.

Wesley Ward is eager to let the dirt settle on Golden Pal’s nightmare journey to Royal Ascot prior to considering plans for the rest of the period.

The dual Breeders’ Cup winner was the narrow preferred to get the better of a highly-anticipated international encounter split Australian sprinter Nature Strip in Tuesday’s King’s Stand Stakes, but his race was over prior to it began, with the usually rapid starter entirely missing out on the break.

Golden Pal was ridden by leading American rider Irad Ortiz Jr, that was making his Royal Ascot launching. Ward described just how complications at the beginning caused his death, with the eventual withdrawal of the reluctant to fill Mondammej and Khaadem, who unshipped Jamie Spencer, playing a large part.
” You try to take care of whatever right down to the last information and afterwards that takes place,” stated the trainer.

” I walked the course before competing with Steve Cauthen as well as Irad, so Steve gave him some insight as well, as well as I told Irad ‘this is different from the States’.

” In the States, they have trainers for each and every horse and they don’t let them go up until they’re ready, but here they have no gateway handlers, so I said to him ‘when the last equine enters, they kick eviction’.

” Irad comprehended that, however, what he informed me as he looked behind him as well as there was the horse that had not packed (Mondammej) and also he looked across as well as saw Jamie Spencer sitting on the side of eviction.

” So after that, as he recalled once again, not knowing that the horse was going to get scraped, he could still see Jamie standing off his equine (Khaadem), so when they kicked eviction Jamie Spencer’s horse went without Jamie as well as our guy was thinking that the starter was going to wait till Jamie got back on his horse.”

Ward reports Golden Pal to be none the worse for the experience, however, whether he returns to Britain for the Nunthorpe at York in August – in which he disappointed last summer season – stays to be seen.
Ward included: “He appeared of it excellent, there were no problems at all literally, however, we’ll get him home today as well as begin moving on once more and see where we go to as well as where he’s at.

” We’ll see how he is normally and see exactly how his jobs are and we’ll just need to make an additional strategy. It’s going to depend upon him.

” The Breeders’ Cup is right there on our home track (Keeneland), so ideally he’ll exist.”
