Moonlight Cloud Primed For Another Gr1
French trainer Freddie Head reports that outstanding sprinting mare Moonlight Cloud (Invincible Spirit-Ventura, by Spectrum) is in fantastic shape ahead of her next outing at Longchamp, reports racinguk.com. The 5YO mare, who has been in stellar form this season with Gr1 victories in the Prix Maurice de Gheest & most recently the Prix Jacques Le Marois, is on course for yet another elite triumph in the Prix de la Foret (7 furlongs) on October 6. "She's very well and I'm very happy. She looks beautiful and all's well," commented the Chantilly-based Head. "The plan is to run in the Gr1 Prix de la Foret on Arc day. After she has run there we will see with George Strawbridge (owner) where we go." With possible overseas targets including the Breeders' Cup meeting and Hong Kong's International meeting, hitherto, Moonlight Cloud has won 11 of her 18 starts, including 5 Gr1s, for £1,247,890 in earnings.
