Melbourne Cup victor Verry Elleegant will certainly miss her designated involvement in the Prix Rothschild at Deauville on Tuesday with brand-new fitness instructor Francis-Henri Graffard choosing to provide her more time to acclimatise.
The Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is intended to be the utmost target for the mare, which won 11 Group One races for Chris Waller Down Under.
However, the star import, that reached Graffard’s Chantilly stable last month, will certainly be given a little more time before making her highly-anticipated European debut.
Verry Elleegant has won races in between 7 furlongs and also both miles of the Melbourne Cup, and also it was hoped she would certainly take on specialist milers in a race restricted to fillies and mares over Deauville’s straight track.
Nevertheless, Graffard has had a rethink, with the Prix Jean Romanet, over a mile and also a quarter now circled on the schedule in three weeks.
Graffard published on Twitter: “Following her last little bit of significant work yesterday, we have made a decision not to proclaim Verry Elleegant for the Team One Prix Rothschild at Deauville on Tuesday, 2 August.
” She is informing us that she needs a bit more time and, having gone over with her proprietors, we have decided that the best thing is to listen to her and rather goal towards the Team One Darley Prix Jean Romanet at Deauville on 21 August.”
