Arc Entry Snow Fairy Out For Rest Of 2012
Owner Cristina Patino confirmed that globe-trotting 7-time Gr1 winning mare Snow Fairy (Intikhab-Woodland Dream, by Charnwood Forest) will miss the Arc after suffering a tendon inury in training, but the star mare will not be retired just yet. "She did her final piece of serious work yesterday and worked very well," the mare's trainer Ed Dunlop told Racing Post. "At evening stables we realised she has a bit of heat in her foreleg and, with veterinary advice, we decided risking her in the Arc in a week's time was not an option. As she was missing the Arc, we thought the best thing to do would be to put her away and give her every chance to recover."
