Queen Supreme, with a trip to the 2021 Breeders’ Cup planned, will start her race preparation in Friday’s Gr2 Unibet “You’re On” Joel Stakes over 1600m at Newmarket, UK.
In the care of UK championship log leader Andrew Balding, the dual South African G1 Cartier Paddock Stakes winner will be lining up against the likes of Benbatl and Master Of The Seas in this popular and competitive race, off at 16:35 (SA time) on Friday.
Balding has engaged Ryan Moore for the ride.
Mike de Kock commented: “Andrew reports that Queen Supreme has impressed him and that she is doing very well, and this is encouraging for South African form. I won this race with Eagle Mountain and Soft Falling Rain, so it has a good history for us.”
Queen Supreme will race for Jessica Jell and new partner Gary Barber, the Hollywood film producer who has 50 films to his credit, including ‘Seabiscuit’. Barber has already been successful at the Breeders Cup winning the Juvenile Fillies Turf with Catch A Glimpse, the Turf Sprint with Belvoir Bay and the Breeders’ Cup Mile with Tourist.
