Racing: O'Brien's Empire is directed towards France
Thursday 09 October 1997
The juvenile heads the eight acceptors for Sunday's Group One Grand Criterium over a mile and the Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien will be expecting his colt to enhance the reputation made when an impressive winner over the same course last month in the Group Three Prix des Chenes.
O'Brien has also left in his York winner Saratoga Springs. The Prix Morny winner, Charge D'Affaires, is one of four French acceptors.
Borgia, a strong-finishing third to Peintre Celebre in last Sunday's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe, has been entered by his German connections in December's Hong Kong International Vase in Sha Tin, won last year by Clive Brittain's Luso.
