IRISH master trainer Aidan O'Brien will give his Australian champion So You Think the chance to make history in next month's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp in Paris.
The dual Cox Plate winner has already won three group 1s in Europe, including the time honoured Eclipse Stakes, beating last year's Arc hero Workforce and more recently the Irish Champion Stakes. O'Brien has been happy with his progress since his eighth group 1 victory on both sides of the world.
''So You Think is in great form and all being well with him, the plan is to run in the Arc given reasonable ground conditions," O'Brien said.
The Arc is considered Europe's best race and will be run over 2400metres on October 2. Coolmore Australian racing manager Tom Magnier is hopeful of another famous win in Paris after Cadel Evans's Tour de France victory. ''It would be a great achievement if he could go there and win for Australia and New Zealand,'' he said. ''We have had a bit of luck in Paris this year already.''
