Pluck Targets Irish 2000 Guineas

Breeders' Cup winner Pluck is bang on course to represent US-based trainer Graham Motion in the Abu Dhabi Irish 2,000 Guineas in May.

British-born Motion intends to give the three-year-old a prep run at the prestigious Keeneland meeting in April before crossing the Atlantic in a bid to emulate Fourstars Allstar, who made history for Leo O'Brien when he won the Curragh Classic back in 1991.
