Snow Fairy & Native Khan both out of France

Thu 30 September 2010

SNOW FAIRY (Prix de l'Opera) and NATIVE KHAN (Prix Jean Luc Lagadere) were pulled out of their respective engagements in France this week-end because of the ground, though Ed still hopes to run them both before the end of the season.

Our star fillies both worked well on the Across-the-Flat gallop on Racecourse Side on Tuesday, but Ed suspected then that Paris was already a non-starter because of the weather. He said:"It was an easy decision in the end - the ground is soft at Longchamp and getting softer by the minute. It looks like being the most testing conditions they have had on Arc day since 1999, so there is no point in us travelling. Snow Fairy will be kept in reserve for the Emirates Airlines Champion Stakes here at Newmarket on October 16, while Native Khan still has two options, the Dewhurst Stakes on the same day or the Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster a week later."
