First Cornerstone is likely to be supplemented for the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf after his win in the Futurity Stakes at the Curragh.

Andrew Oliver: Trains First Cornerstone

The Andrew Oliver-trained colt was purchased last week by American syndicate Team Valor and served an immediate dividend with Group Two success, beating Aidan O'Brien's Flying The Flag by a length and a half.

The Vincent O'Brien National Stakes at the Curragh or the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere (Grand Criterium) at Longchamp could be the next step before Santa Anita in November.

Team Valor president Barry Irwin was on hand to lead the Hurricane Run youngster back to the winner's enclosure.

Team Valor tweeted: "Barry Irwin said TVI will probably run First Cornerstone once more and pay the US$100,000 to nominate him for the BC Juvenile Turf.

"Not clear yet whether the prep will be in the G1 National Stakes in Ireland, the G1 Grand Criterium on Arc day, or in the US."
