Thunder Snow return to action likely next month


Saeed bin Suroor revealed that Thunder Snow, the impressive winner of the G1 Dubai World Cup Sponsored by Emirates Airline at Meydan, UAE, at the end of March, could make his European return in the Prix Jacques le Marois (G1, 1m, turf, 12 August) at Deauville.

The trainer said: “We are planning to take Thunder Snow to the G1 Jockey Club Gold Cup  (G1, 10f, dirt, 29 September) at Belmont Park, New York, at the end of September, but want to give him a race in Europe first. That could be the Prix Jacques le Marois.

“Thunder Snow is fine – he just needed a break. The ultimate target this year is the Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1, 10f, dirt, November 3, Churchill Downs).”
