Connections of Desert Encounter will set their sights on a Pattison Canadian International success year night following the seven-year-old triumphed on Saturday at Woodbine.
Desert Encounter had been a span winner of the Grade One heating this past year, when beating fellow British raider Thundering Blue, also had a length to spare on this event within runner Alounak that is German.
The David Simcock-trained gelding has been enrolling a fourth win on the bounce after Group Three wins at Goodwood, Windsor and Newbury, and his staff see no reason why Desert Encounter cant bid to imitate Joshua Tree, whos the only triple winner of the 12-furlong race so far.
Philip Robinson, racing manager for owner Abdulla Al Mansoori, advised www.woodbine.com:It would be lovely (to return in 2020). I dare say as he is for sure, if hes still a horse that is happy, hell return. He loves it , why dont you?
The last three or four races he has just never stopped improving, hes still improving. You expect it from a four- or – five-year-old but I think he is progressing a lot of.
Hes enjoying his racing – he is only in a very delighted place (at) this second.
