Talismanic won the Longines Breeders' Cup Turf

Winner of the Breeders' Cup Turf over Beach Patrol, Godolphin Stable's Talismanic could make his next start in Hong Kong. Trainer Andre Fabre told At The Races that the 4-year-old son of Medaglia d'Oro prefers to chase a faster early pace, more in line with the American style of racing.

“The French style of racing does not suit him, he prefers a faster pace and then he can finish strongly,” Fabre said. “At Saint-Cloud when he won his Group Two, he got the strong pace and that was his best performance.

“Hong Kong is a good option for him, but we need to see how he is when he comes home,” Fabre concluded.

The Breeders' Cup was Talismanic's first top-level victory, and his sixth lifetime win from 16 starts. The colt has earned just over $2.6 million.

    A lady I know who has an experienced eye for horses spotted Talismanic in the paddock at the Breeders Cup and knew exactly how well he was going to run. Wish I had been within earshot; her’s is an opinion I value.

    I do not understand. American horses cannot race in Japan but European horses can?
