Joshua Tree considered for BC Turf

Joshua Tree will be considered for the Breeders' Cup Turf at Churchill Downs next month following an excellent effort in Sunday's Canadian International.


Marco Botti's colt finished third behind brilliant Arc winner Danedream in Germany on his penultimate start, and confirmed that promise by chasing home John Hammond's Sarah Lynx at Woodbine.


He had Aidan O'Brien's Treasure Beach and fellow British raiders Arctic Cosmos, Quest For Peace and Redwood behind, and could head back across the Atlantic if Botti is pleased with his training in the meantime.


The trainer said: "He ran a very good race and we were all very pleased. The French filly showed a very good turn of foot and was very impressive. Our horse was a bit slow from the stalls, but he finished nicely. We expected him to run well, but you never know until the day.

Older Comments about Joshua Tree considered for BC Turf...

I often wondered why Joshua Tree wasn't sent over for the 2010 BC Turf when he was still racing for Coolmore, after he won the 2010 G1 Canadian International Stakes? Joshua Tree very likely could've won last year's BC Turf standing on his head it was such a weak field. He'll face a much tougher and field at Churchill Downs this year than he would've a year ago. But he looked to be coming back into solid form again with his 2nd place run behind Sara Lynx in Sunday's G1 Canadian International Stakes. I think he'll make for a fine addition to this year's BC Turf field. JMO.
