UK Gr2 Winner Heads To US For Elusive Gr1
Multiple European Gr2 winner Strong Suit (Rahy-Helwa, by Silver Hawk) has been transferred to southern California in an effort to chase a Gr1 victory, reports racingpost.com. The 4YO entire was Gr1-placed as a 2YO in the Middle Park Stakes & Phoenix Stakes, and at 3 placed in the Gr1 Prix Jean Prat, as well as notching up three Gr2 victories among his 5 wins to date. His owners Qatar Racing Limited, led by Sheikh Fahad Al Thani, believe US racing will prove a better match for Strong Suit whose potential they remain convinced has yet to be fully realised.
