Stormy Antarctic is expected to continue plying his trade in Europe after claiming a fine Group One place in France.
The seven-year-old posted his best effort so far this term in being beaten two lengths by Persian King in the Prix d’Ispahan, following outings in Group Three and Listed company.
Stormy Antarctic has done the majority of his racing abroad over the last few seasons, and trainer Ed Walker is planning to keep the Stormy Atlantic gelding on his travels.
He said: “He ran a cracking race in France – he gave his all, as he always does. He’s quite remarkable in that he still retains so much enthusiasm and ability.
“There are plenty of options for him, but he’s unlikely to be doing much racing here – because for whatever reason, he seems to be much more effective on the Continent.
“It’s a shame that trips to Australia and America look unlikely this year, because there are some good pots to hunt there, but he’s French-bred and qualifies for premiums – so we’ll have a look there.”
