James Garfield lost nothing in defeat at York and connections are keen to send him to America and reckon the track and trip could suit him well

JAMES GARFIELD could be heading to America later this season after his second in the Acomb Stakes at York.

George Scott’s two-year-old lost nothing in defeat on the Knavesmire, and the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf is now an option.

“He’s come out of the race really well,” said Scott.

“I think he’ll take in another race before a possible tilt at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf, that’s the plan.

“He could first go back to six (furlongs) for the Mill Reef or the Middle Park. We’ll also be considering the Somerville Tattersall over seven furlongs.

“Frankie (Dettori) has ridden the winner of the Juvenile Turf three times and is very much of the opinion that it would be a suitable race for him.

“Obviously the mile would be the only slight question mark given he’s shown so much speed, but the fast ground and the tight track won’t be a problem at all to him.”

Juddmonte International winner Ulysses is also on track for a trip to America where he is set to run in the Breeders’ Cup Turf.

Ulysses was an impressive winner of the Juddmonte

“He seems to have come out of the race very well, which is good news,” said Alan Cooper, racing manager to owners the Niarchos family.

“The plan is to work back from the Breeders’ Cup. As he only ran on Wednesday we will just feel our way for a few days and come up with a plan between now and then.

“We are in no rush and will let things unfold as and when Sir Michael is ready.

“To give the horse one more run would be the case in an ideal world, but we’ll feel our way and see what’s best for the horse.”
