Kingsbarns Seeks Derby Throne

Tuesday, 30th October 2012

Gr1 Racing Post Trophy winner Kingsbarns (Galileo-Beltisaal, by Belmez) will aim to duplicate the deeds of stablemate and 4-time Gr1 winner Camelot (Montjeu-Tarfah, by Kingmambo) by capturing the Gr1 Epsom Derby in 2013, reports guardian.co.uk. Trainer Aidan O'Brien enthused: "He is just a baby, as Pat [Keating, O'Brien's head groom] keeps reminding me. He hasn't been to the sales, he hadn't been on a plane before. He had a lot to learn. This was all new to him. He was even too green to canter back [in front of the crowd] after the race. But natural ability is very hard to stop. It will be up to the lads as to where we start off with him, but he's an exciting horse. This was a big test but he has passed it with flying colours."
