Harzand Confirmed For The Curragh
Epsom Derby winner Harzand (Sea the Stars-Hazariya, by Xaar) is among nine declarations for Saturday's Gr1 Irish Derby at The Curragh, reports Racing Post. Trainer Dermot Weld raised the possibility of Harzand missing the Curragh classic as he feared the race had come around too soon, but the Aga Khan-owned colt, who was treated with a course of antibiotics after sustaining an injury in the lead-up to the race, will definitely take his place in the field. US Army Ranger, who was ruled out due to an unsatisfactory scope, and stable-mate Sword Fighter are the only withdrawals from the 11 involved at the confirmation stage.
