TRAINER Tony Millard says his runner Elusive State could head towards a race being trumpeted as the richest in the world after the six-year-old’s impressive return to the track at Sha Tin on Sunday.

Despite stepping out at a distance considered far short of his best, Elusive State ran on strongly for second in the Class Two Po Yan Handicap (1,200m) and Millard says the sky is the limit for the gelding.

He suggested the Saudi Cup, an 1,800m dirt race in February with a first prize of US$10 million, may be on his radar, as well as another attempt to take the dirt specialist to March’s Dubai World Cup meeting.
