Phoenix Target For Buratino

Tuesday, 28th July 2015

Mark Johnston says that impressive Royal Ascot winner Buratino will make his Gr1 debut in next month's Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh, reports Sky Sports. The 2YO Irish-bred son of Exceed And Excel made it 4 wins from 6 starts when scoring a stylish 2-length win in the Gr2 Coventry Stakes at the royal meeting in June, and Johnston says the Godolphin-owned colt has done nothing but please him since. "Buratino's next run will be in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes, all being well," the Middleham trainer said. "Everything's gone absolutely according to plan - he's spot-on, just ticking over." He added: "The Keeneland Phoenix Stakes was always going to be the next run, nothing before that." The Gr1 Keeneland Phoenix Stakes (6 furlongs) will be run at the Curragh on 9 August.
