Coolmore beckons for Power at end of season

LAST month's Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Power is more than likely to retire to Coolmore Stud at the end of the season, a spokesman for the stud has confirmed.

The son of Oasis Dream was a top two-year-old for Aidan O’Brien, winning the Coventry Stakes and National Stakes.

Retirement to Coolmore would see Power become the first son of Oasis Dream to stand at the operation.

Meanwhile, plans for Wednesday’s Prince Of Wales’s Stakes favourite So You Think still call for the son of High Chaparral to enter stud at Coolmore in Australia this August, even though he holds an entry in the Irish Champion Stakes the following month.

So You Think will stand for A$66,000 (£42,474/€52,708), the highest fee for an incoming first-year Australian sire.
