Gold Cup War
IT IS NOT every day that a horse that has run in the Breeders’ Cup Mile, will have one of its next starts in a race in the Caribbean.

War Envoy is due to arrive over the next couple of days and will certainly have many admirers and create interest among racing enthusiasts in Barbados.
