Americain Returns to France To Prepare For 3rd Melb Cup
Australian part-owner Colleen Bamford confirmed 2010 Gr1 Melbourne Cup-winning 7YO entire Americain (Dynaformer-America, by Arazi) will return to France next month to begin a 3rd successive Cup campaign with former trainer Alain de Royer Dupre, before retiring for stallion duties shuttling between Australia & Europe. In his previous Victorian Spring campaigns, Americain won the Geelong & Melbourne Cups in 2010, plus the Moonee Valley Cup & Zipping Classic (& an unlucky 4th in the Melbourne Cup behind Dunaden) in 2011.
