Glorious Goodwood for Houtzen

Gold Coast trainer Toby Edmonds advised on Monday that I Am Invincible mare Houtzen, now owned by Aquis Farm, will remain in the UK and race at least once more before being served by Lope De Vega.

Houtzen is being transferred to the stables of Martyn Meade for the £300,000 Group 2 Qatar King George Stakes (1000m) at the Glorious Goodwood meeting on August 2nd.

The mare finished eighth under Kerrin McEvoy in the Group 1 King's Stand Stakes over 1000m at the Royal Ascot meeting last Tuesday after going down on her head leaving the barriers.

Meade prepared three-year-old Advertise (Showcasing) under Frankie Dettori to win the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup over 1200m at Royal Ascot on Saturday in a welcome return to form for Meade after he had closed his stable for a month to bring his team back to full racing fitness.
