Arc Winner Danedream Ruled Out Of Title Defense
In breaking news this morning, Germany's defense of the Gr1 Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe is in tatters with last year's winner Danedream ruled out of the contest. According to thoroughbreddailynews.com, the tragedy is due to "a case of swamp fever being discovered at Cologne racecourse". The upshot is that Danedream now has no option but to enter quarantine, in effect making it impossible for her to be at Longchamp for Sunday's race. The horse discovered with swamp disease has been put down, while "all [horses] stabled at the Cologne track [have been] put under quarantine for three months".
