A Caulfield and Melbourne Cup hopeful will join Black Caviar on her return flight to Australia.
Black Caviar and seven-year-old Voila Ici, a dual Group One winner in Italy, will arrive in Melbourne on July 10.
They will spend two weeks in quarantine at Werribee.
Voila Ici will be trained by Peter Moody for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.
Bloodstock agent Rob Roulston, who brokered the deal to get Voila Ici to Australia, says the stayer will be a genuine Cups hope.
“He’s passed the ballot for the two the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and as a dual Group One winner he’ll have a excess weight that will guarantee him a begin in both races,” Roulston told the Racing Victoria site.
“He’s been the finest horse in Italy for the past two many years and whilst he is a stallion he’s been bought particularly to contest this year’s Cups.”
Moody has loved Group 1 achievement this season with yet another imported galloper, the former Luca Cumani-trained stayer Manighar.
