Three in a row for Godolphin as Barney Roy lands Grosser Preis von Baden

Barney Roy provided Godolphin with a third successive win in the Group 1 Longines Grosser Preis von Baden in Germany on Sunday.

Trained by Charlie Appleby, who saddled Ghaiyyath to capture the 1m4f contest last year, and ridden by James Doyle, Barney Roy struck for the first time at the distance to land his third Group 1 of the year, following wins in the Jebel Hatta and Grosser Dallmayr Preis.

No spectators permitted at the Breeders' Cup
Spectators will not be permitted at the Breeders’ Cup at Keeneland in November due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s event takes place on November 6-7 and will be worth $31 million, the same as last year, while officials announced that the 2022 Breeders’ Cup would also be held at Keeneland, with Del Mar the host course for 2021.

Fred Hertrich, Breeders’ Cup chairman, said: “While we are disappointed that we will not be joined by our fans on-site this year, our utmost priority is and always will be to conduct the Breeders’ Cup in the safest way possible.”
