It’s always fun to see which US horses will make the journey, and there have been some changes on that front over the last few days: Doug Payne, the recipient of the Holekamp/Turner Grant for 2021 with Camarillo, has opted not to make the trip in light of ongoing travel restrictions, but Avery Klunick, who’s currently based with Australia’s Kevin and Emma McNab in the UK, picked up her qualification with Pisco Sour at Cornbury over the weekend. And so the race to Le Lion continues on apace!
