G1 Winner Verrazano Set for European Campaign

Verrazano, one of the best 3-year-olds in America in 2013, has been transferred to Ballydoyle Stables to be trained by Aidan O'Brien. A winner of the Wood Memorial Stakes-Gr.1 he put up one of the displays of the season when taking the Haskell Invitational Stakes-Gr.1 by a record 9 3/4 lengths for trainer Todd Pletcher. Ashford Stud manager Dermot Ryan explained the decision “Being the best son of More Than Ready, who is doing so well as a sire in Australia we feel that a European campaign would raise his profile when the time comes for him to shuttle there.”
