Marcel Boussac option for Fantasia
LUCA CUMANI has not ruled out the possibility that his star juvenile filly Fantasia could be seen in action on the other side of the Channel in the Group 1 Prix Marcel Boussac at Longchamp on October 5.
The daughter of Sadler's Wells has followed an identical path to former Cumani-trained starlet Gossamer so far in her career, with victories in a 6f Newmarket maiden at the July meeting and in the Prestige Stakes at Goodwood and, although she could bid to emulate that filly in the Meon Vallley Stud Fillies' Mile at Ascot on September 27, she will also have the Longchamp race as an alternative.
Cumani said: "Everything is possible. Both the Fillies' Mile and the Prix Marcel Boussac will come under consideration. She has been in good form since her Goodwood success and we are looking forward to seeing her in action again."
