‘George’ More Likely for Arc

Aidan O’Brien said it is “more likely” Order Of St George (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}) will run in the G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe on Oct. 1 rather than the G1 Emirates Melbourne Cup on Nov. 7.The grand 5-year-old stayer won the G1 Irish St Leger for a second time at The Curragh on Sunday and is now in the frame to contest the big race at Chantilly, in which he finished third last year. Order Of St George would have to carry top weight in the Melbourne Cup, but the Ballydoyle handler at this stage has a preference for the Arc.

O’Brien told the Herald Sun, “We haven’t decided yet between the Arc and the Melbourne Cup for Order Of St George but it’s probably more likely that he will go for the Arc.”
