Racing: Electrocutionist out of Irish race
Wednesday 09 August 2006
Electrocutionist, runner-up to Hurricane Run in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes 11 days ago, is injured and will miss next month's Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown.
The five-year-old Godolphin colour-bearer tweaked an old injury at Ascot and will now be on the sidelines until the Champion Stakes at Newmarket on 14 October. "He aggravated an old splint problem," said the blues' racing manager, Simon Crisford. "It needs to be cooled out and he won't be going to Ireland."
Electrocutionist, winner of the Dubai World Cup, had chased home Ouija Board in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes on his other European outing this year.
The five-year-old was 3-1 with Coral for the Irish Champion Stakes, which is set to feature David Junior, Irish Derby winner Dylan Thomas, Ouija Board and Alexander Goldrun.
