IRISH 1000 Guineas winner Bethrah will be trained with an autumn campaign in mind after connections decided to miss the Falmouth Stakes next week.
Dermot Weld’s filly progressed from winning a Limerick maiden in April to Classic glory just five weeks later.
Following her success she was given an easy spell at Shadwell Stud and races over 10 furlongs will now be on her agenda.
“We gave Bethrah a three-week break back at the stud and we are going to train her with autumn in mind,” said Angus Gold, owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum’s racing manager.
“When we bring her back it will be slightly easier ground and we’ll maybe look to go over a mile and a quarter with her in due course.
“Her next race hasn’t been discussed, we will obviously think of races in Ireland to start with but we haven’t got that far.
“She had three quick races early on in the season so we’ve given her a break to freshen her up and we’ll see when she’s ready and plan around that. She has achieved so much in such a short space of time.”
