Melb Spring Racing Casualty 1: Maldivian Out
In Australia, triple Gr1-winning 7YO gelding & last year's weight-for-age championship Gr1 Cox Plate victor Maldivian (Zabeel-Shynzi, by Danzig) will miss the rest of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival after injuring a leg during yesterday's trackwork at Flemington. Trainer Mark Kavanagh confirmed Maldivian had "heat in his near-side front tendon" when he returned to the stables & subsequent veterinary examination revealed "he has a tear of 12.5%."
