Lankan Rupee Future Unclear

Monday, 21st August 2017

Meanwhile, in the Gr3 Spring Stakes at Morphettville in Adelaide (see above) odds-on favourite Lankan Rupee faded badly to finish well down the track. According to racing.com, trainer Mick Price reported after the event that the former Australian Horse of the Year had pulled up with a "two out of five EIPH", in reference to tests done on Lankan Rupee at the Morphettville Equine Clinic on Saturday evening. EIPH is exercise induced pulmonary haemorrhage, and is related to bleeding in the lungs. With Stewards reporting no visible signs of any issues following the disappointing run, Price is at sixes and sevens as to what path to plot for the now 8YO gelding who was heading towards the Gr1 Memsie Stakes.
