Immortal Verse Late Scratching From Arc Sale
Following the unfortunate withdrawals of defending Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe champion Danedream (Lomitas-Danedrop, by Danehill) and Gr1 King George & Queen Elizabeth Stakes & Gr1 Eclipse Stakes-winning 4YO entire Nathaniel (Galileo-Magnificent Style, by Silver Hawk) from this Sunday's race, "the Arqana Arc Sale, held at Saint-Cloud on the eve of the big race, has also lost a star attraction with the withdrawal of Immortal Verse [Pivotal-Side of Paradise, by Sadler's Wells]" reports racingpost.com. Kilfrush Stud has decided to withdraw the 2-time Gr1 winner from the sale, with managing director Brendan Hayes commenting, "We've withdrawn Immortal Verse from the Arc sale but no decision has been taken about her future… She probably won't race again, though."
