Kinsale King, who has trained here
the past two months since winning the Group I Golden Shaheen Stakes in Dubai March 27, is ready for his next challenge in England.
“He will work here Monday, ship to
New York Tuesday, work on the Belmont turf June 6 and ship to England June 7,”
said trainer Carl O’Callaghan of the 5-year-old gelding.
Kinsale King, unbeaten in his last
four starts since O’Callaghan took over his training, will seek to become a
graded or group winner on three continents. He won the Grade III Vernon
Underwood Stakes here and the Grade II Palos Verdes Handicap at Santa Anita
last winter before his trip to Dubai.
“Grass should be no problem,” said
O’Callaghan of the horse’s first scheduled start on turf in the Golden Jubilee
Stakes at six furlongs at Royal Ascot on June 19.
