Musical Chairs For Ouija Board

Friday, 7th July 2006

Champion European racemare Ouija Board is due to have her 18th start in the Coral Eclipse Stakes in England tomorrow, yet - strangely for a Gr1 mare of her ability - she will be ridden by her 9th different jockey. According to racingpost.co.uk, "Belgian Christophe Soumillon (will) take the ride in the Coral-Eclipse Stakes because of the unavailability of Olivier Peslier." Although Peslier was set to retain the ride following the success enjoyed recently by the pair at Royal Ascot, he is committed to honour "contractual obligations to the Wertheimer family at Deauville". By Darley shuttler Cape Cross, Ouija Board is vying for favouritism with boom galloper David Junior.
