Globetrotting Irish sprinter Gordon Lord Byron has claimed another big win in the Group Two Champions Sprint at Ascot.
The winner of the George Ryder Stakes in Sydney earlier this year, Gordon Lord Byron burst through a narrow gap to beat Tropics by 1-1/4 lengths.
“He’s a super horse, it’s a pleasure to train him,” Tom Hogan said.
“It’s the stuff of dreams to have a horse like him.
“We’ll probably go to Hong Kong with him now.”
Hogan would also like to convince American officials to give Gordon Lord Byron an invitation to the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita.
“He’s not Breeders’ Cup eligible, but I’m sure a deal could be made with the Breeders’ Cup committee,” he said.
“We’ll continue on travelling. There’s plenty of invitations for him.”
Trainer Dean Ivory was proud of Tropics, saying he could also race overseas.
“I’d like to go to Hong Kong, but we’ll just work our way through the calendar,” Ivory said.
“We’ll probably have a word with Tom (Hogan) and follow Gordon Lord Byron around!”
Jim Goldie plans to stay much closer to home with third-placed Jack Dexter.
“Gordon Lord Byron must be the toughest horse around,” he said.
“We might go on to the Wentworth at Doncaster again and do the same thing next year.”
