European Invader Order of Australia to Return Home After Coolmore Turf Mile

October 7, 2022

LEXINGTON, Ky.— Derrick Smith, Mrs. John Magnier, Michael Tabor and Anne Marie O’Brien’s Order of Australia (IRE), who arrived at Keeneland early Wednesday after clearing quarantine in Chicago, had his second morning of exercise on the main track with exercise rider Stephen Ryder aboard.

“He has been running well, and we are very happy with him,” traveling lad Pat Keating said of the Aidan O’Brien trainee, who was second in his most recent start in the Prix du Moulin de Longchamp (G1) on Sept. 4. Order of Australia drew post position three for Saturday’s $1 million Coolmore Turf Mile (G1) with Christophe Soumillon to ride.

Order of Australia’s biggest victory came here at Keeneland in the 2020 FanDuel Breeders Cup Mile (G1) Presented by PDJF when he pulled off a 73-1 shocker and led a 1-2-3 O’Brien sweep in the race. Saturday’s Coolmore Mile is a “Win and You’re In” race for this year’s Breeders’ Cup Mile here on Nov. 5.

“We are not staying,” Keating said. “We are going right back (to Europe) after the race.”
