Golden Horn’s owner/breeder Anthony Oppenheimer is now dreaming of the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe with his Epsom Derby winner.
But first Oppenheimer needs to see Golden Horn show he can race right-handed which would be achieved by running in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown next month.
So far the John Gosden-trained colt has run either on straight or left-handed tracks.
“I would certainly be up for the Eclipse. I’d just like to make sure because he would be going the other way round and one or two horses don’t like going a different way,” Oppenheimer told At The Races.
“We’ve just got to make sure he’s OK leading with the correct foot.
“He’s had three races (this season) and we just want to see how he handles a couple more races before we decide on anything else.
“I’d love to run him in the Arc.
“I want to make sure he goes the other way round and he wouldn’t want to run on soft to heavy ground. He’d just hate it. There’s an awful lot to think about.
When Golden Horn’s racing days are over, Oppenheimer’s aim is to stand him at stud in England.
“The intention is, at the moment, to stand him somewhere in Newmarket or certainly in England anyway. That is what I would love to see,” he said.
“I want to use him and go and see him when I want to. I can’t stand him at my stud as it’s not big enough.
“My ambition is to stand him for the British breeders rather than anyone else.”
