Botti's BC Plans For Planteur Derailed
Dual Dubai World Cup place-getter Planteur may not run in the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Classic, reports 1.skysports.com. Trained by Marco Botti, whose charge Dandino is in Melbourne for the Spring Carnival (see earlier item), Planteur's Dubai placings were on the Tapeta surface which is also in place at California's Breeders' Cup host track Santa Anita. Botti has reserved his decision on a potential US raid after the Gr1-winning son of Danehill Dancer disappointed last weekend in the Gr2 Prix Dollar at Longchamp. "Unfortunately he had quite a hard race, he is quite tired and a run like that has messed up the plans a bit," divulged Botti. "There has been no decision about the Breeders' Cup yet. We want to see how he is and how he works in the next week or so."
