Fame and Glory's Breeders' Cup participation in doubt


Fame and Glory may bypass the Breeders’ Cup Turf, Aidan O’Brien revealed on Friday. CIting the “hard race” the 4-year-old son of Montjeu had in finishing fifth in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe on Oct. 3, O’Brien said it was “quite possible” that Fame and Glory, winner of the Coronation Cup and Tattersalls Gold Cup, would not travel to Churchill Downs, but that there is a chance that he would remain in training next year.

While O’Brien and the Coolmore braintrust are still deciding on their final team for the Breeders’ Cup, two of their horses are being pointed to the Cup. Bright Horizon, the 5 1/2-length winner of the 1 3/4-mile Irish Cesarewitch Handicap at the Curragh on Sept. 26, is likely for the Marathon, while Together, a neck second to White Moonstone in the Fillies Mile at Ascot and more recently a half-length third in the Tattersalls Million Trophy at Newmarket, is slated for the Juvenile Fillies Turf.
