Ryan Moore

Ryan Moore has targeted the Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe on October 2 as his return to racing after being sidelined since July 30 following the injury in which he broke his right arm.
Moore had to undergo two operations after the three-horse pile up that has put him out of action since then.

The former champion jockey, if fit, will team up with last year’s winner Workforce for Sir Michael Stoute. Moore has already ridden the four-year to victory in Paris as well as scoring in the Derby last June and will be one of the most popular horse racing tips.

The 27-year old was boosted on Tuesday by the Doctors who confirmed that he is making progress. X-rays have been positive and the movement is slowly coming back into his right arm. He will see a specialist in a further two weeks and should get a likely date to when he can return to the saddle.

If he cannot make the Arc in time, Moore will have an eye on the Breeders Cup meeting in November. Those who bet on racing will know he already has two winners in the prestigious meeting from the States, both coming in the Breeders Turf in 2008 and 2009. He can expect to have plenty of top rides from British and Irish hopefuls.

Moore has been unable to repeat the remarkable season he had last year winning the Oaks and the Derby for the first time, as well a host of other major wins around the world.

He did ride So You Think to the Tattersalls Gold Cup in Ireland earlier this year and there will still be the opportunity to repeat his Arc success from 12 months ago if he can prove hit fitness before then.
