Connections are not in a hurry for the next race with Courage Mon Ami

Courage Mon Ami, last year’s Gold Cup winner, is currently recovering from a setback and connections are cautiously planning his return to the track. Trained by John and Thady Gosden, the five-year-old delighted his owners Wathnan Racing by winning the Royal Ascot feature race in 2023. Despite his setback, Courage Mon Ami remains a beloved member of the team.

After finishing second in the Lonsdale Cup last year, Courage Mon Ami was gearing up to defend his Gold Cup title when he encountered his setback. With the summer racing season out of reach, his team is taking their time with his recovery and aiming for a potential return to ParisLongchamp in October.

Wathnan’s racing adviser Richard Brown confirmed that Courage Mon Ami is back in training and taking things slowly. The plan is to target the Prix du Cadran with a possible prep race beforehand. The priority is the horse’s well-being, and he will only return to racing when he is ready.

Courage Mon Ami holds a special place in the hearts of the Wathnan team for his past successes, and he will be given all the time and care he needs to make his return to the track.
