Westmeath Trainer Taking On World's Best At Breeder's Cup

The Rathowen man runs two horses on this evening's 'Friday Future Stars' card.

A combined $1.3m is up for grabs for a Westmeath trainer at the Breeder's Cup tonight.

Adrian Murray runs Valiant Force in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint at 9pm, and Cuban Thunder in the Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile over a mile on Dirt at 11pm.

The veteran Rathowen trainer has enjoyed a breakthrough season, the highlight of which was seeing Bucanero Fuerte winning the Group One Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh in August.

His host of talented juvenile horses have now brought him to the Breeder's Cup in California, where he says the excitement is building.

Murray describes the scene at Santa Anita to Midlands 103's David Hollywood:
