Sussex Next On Panthalassa’s Dance Card

2023 G1 Saudi Cup hero Panthalassa (Jpn) (Lord Kanaloa {Jpn}) will target the G1 Sussex S. at Goodwood in August, according to the entire’s trainer Yoshito Yahagi.

Yahagi, who ran Bathrat Leon (Jpn) (Kizuna {Jpn}), told, “We had the idea of a mile race somewhere, I think the Sussex S. on a tough course would suit. The [G1] International S. is the flattest one-turn race in the UK, and I have the image of it being suited to a speed type of horse.”

Panthalassa won the 2022 G1 Dubai Turf at Meydan and was also runner-up in the G1 Tenno Sho (Autumn) later that year. He secured the Saudi Cup by 3/4 of a length over Country Grammer (Tonalist) at King Abdulaziz Racetrack in Riyadh in February.

Of his 10th-place finish in the G1 Dubai World Cup on Mar. 25, the trainer added, “He was quite tired but seems to be recovering well now. He will return to Ritto Training Centre in a month, I’m confident that is plenty of time.”
