O'Brien Adds Two More Breeders' Cup Contenders

Group I winners Black Minnaloushe and King Charlemagne are both being seriously considered for next month's Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Belmont Park, according to the Racing Post.
   
"The present plan is to run Black Minnaloushe in either the Breeders' Cup Mile or the Classic while we are looking at the Mile or the Sprint for King Charlemagne," trainer Aidan O'Brien told the Racing Post Sept. 27.

He added that Galileo is doing very well and is still being pointed for the Classic (gr. I).
   
Black Minnaloushe won the Irish 2,000 Guineas and the St James's Palace Stakes while King Charlemagne, unbeaten this year, achieved his Group 1 win in the Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville last month.
   
Mozart, winner of the July Cup and the Nunthorpe Stakes, remains on target for the Sprint.
