Dance And Dance will remain in America to contest the Grade One Shadwell Mile at Keeneland on October 8.
Ed Vaughan’s stable star suffered a luckless run in the Woodbine Mile on Saturday, finishing full of running after been left with no room.
On the plus side for Vaughan he now knows his five-year-old is well up to mixing it with the best milers around.
“I’ve left him out there, which was always the plan if he ran well, as he is going to have a crack at the Shadwell Mile at Keeneland,” Vaughan said.
“We trotted him up the next morning as I stayed over there and he was as fresh as paint, he didn’t even have a race, it was more like a piece of work.
“He’s up to that level anyway, at least we know that now, he’s the ideal horse for round there.
“I suppose the Breeders’ Cup is plenty far off and we’ll have to see how he runs in his next race, but we’ll keep all options open. The Shadwell is a ‘win and you’re in’ race, as was the last one.”
