Facteur Cheval group eager to take over America following Ascot

Following his remarkable performance at Meydan during Dubai World Cup night, it appears that Facteur Cheval may be making his way to Royal Ascot.

Jerome Reynier's young prodigy has displayed remarkable consistency in their performances, primarily focusing on the mile distance. They impressively secured no lower than third place in six races against top-notch competition last season. Their campaign concluded with a vigorous pursuit of Big Rock at Ascot on the prestigious British Champions Day.

With the distance extended to nine furlongs for an incredibly intense edition of the Dubai Turf, the French contender at last seized his opportunity to shine. He joyfully navigated the twists and turns of Meydan, ultimately emerging victorious by the narrowest of margins under the skilful guidance of Maxime Guyon.

Additional global opportunities may arise after the visit to Royal Ascot for the inaugural Queen Anne Stakes, as the team is eager to venture into further races that involve navigating a curve.

"The circumstances definitely played into his favour, and I must admit, he embodies the essence of an American horse," expressed Barry Irwin, the CEO of Team Valour, who co-owns the horse with Gary Barber.

He has a desire to partake in the exhilarating experience of running on a circular course, accompanied by a rhythm that allows him to unleash his full potential.
