Boynton has Breeders’ option

Charlie Appleby is considering sending Boynton to America for a crack at the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita.

Boynton: Could run at the Breeders' Cup

The Superlative Stakes winner has not been seen since he finished third in the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood and holds an entry in the Racing Post Trophy.

But the Newmarket handler has warned his participation at Doncaster is unlikely, with the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, which Appleby won in 2013 with Outstrip, on November 4 the preferred option.

Appleby said: "Boynton is not out for the season yet. He has done a bit of growing and we have been patient with him.

"He missed Doncaster (Champagne Stakes) because the ground was on the easy side.

"He hasn't taken up an engagement in the Royal Lodge at Newmarket and while the Racing Post Trophy is another race under consideration, the ground is unlikely to be right.

"He's a horse that we have got on the radar for looking at America with. He's by More Than Ready so his pedigree should be perfectly suited to the Breeders' Cup.

"We've also got to start looking at putting the team in place that we will look to take to Dubai, so he may be one that spends the winter out there."
