That may have been sufficient to ship jockey and horse into the winter dreaming of additional glory in subsequent spring’s Classics, however coach Charley Rossi – the companion of Marcialis – believes there may be extra to come back earlier than shut of play this season, and has a selection of two targets for Tiger Tanaka subsequent weekend. 

“The filly has been in actually good type since Longchamp and I feel she is stronger now than earlier than the Boussac,” stated Rossi. “We thought concerning the Breeders’ Cup however Tiger Tanaka’s sire [Clodovil] shouldn’t be nominated, so it could value $100,000 to run, which might be mad.

 

“The choices are to go to the Criterium de Saint-Cloud subsequent Saturday or else to move to Italy on the Sunday for both the Premio Dormello – their model of the Boussac – or the Gran Criterium.”

No choice might be made earlier than the center of this week however Rossi is leaning in direction of a visit to San Siro in Milan, which might present an emotional homecoming for Marcialis after her Longchamp exploits.

“My secure is definitely nearer to Milan than to Paris and there can be an additional day of restoration in comparison with Saint-Cloud,” stated Rossi. “On prime of that Jessica is Italian, whereas Tiger Tanaka would not qualify for French premiums anyway, so there are some things in favour of Italy.”
