Curragh not on Valyra’s agenda
Wednesday 27 June 2012
Jean-Claude Rouget has ruled out supplementing his unbeaten French Oaks heroine Valyra for the Darley-sponsored Irish equivalent at the Curragh next month.
The three-year-old was the outsider of three Aga Khan runners in the Prix de Diane but produced an impressive performance in the hands of Johnny Murtagh to beat the previously unbeaten Beauty Parlour readily.
Valyra has now won each of her three starts and Rouget is considering the next plan of attack, but she will not be lining up in Ireland on July 22.
"She is fine, I am very happy with her. I don't know yet where she will run next," said Rouget.
"She will stay in France, but I don't know which race she will go for.
"I was very pleased with her at Chantilly. She was very impressive."
