BreederA. Thompson & M. O'Brien
Ribchester brings his sensational record to North America for the first time after spending most of his career in England and France. Except for one start, he has been among the top three finishers every time he races. After a busy few weeks, he is scheduled to retire after closing his career in the Breeders’ Cup Mile. He will take up stallion duty at Kildangen Stud in Ireland, part of his owner’s worldwide Thoroughbred holdings.
Ribchester was iffy for the Mile after finishing second in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot Oct. 21. However, trainer Richard Fahey announced Oct. 26 that the Irish-born four-year-old is in great shape to make the journey to Del Mar.
"He has kept his coat, he looks a picture, and clearly, he wants to go," Fahey said. "He has done everything but tell me himself that he should be on the plane to California.”
Fahey is a former jockey who has been training since 1993. He is based in North Yorkshire, England.
