Snaith Champion Scratched

Still on track for Woolavington

Hot favourite to win this evening’s Gr2 Daisy Guineas, Oh Susanna has been scratched as a precautionary measure.

Jono Snaith told the Sporting Post that their star filly had come up with a  bruised heel – a very minor 1/10 – and that a very considered decision had been made in consultation with owners Drakenstein Stud to withdraw her..

“She is a very valuable filly and we have to be cognisant of the fact that she is a favourite for the race. We cannot take any chances and our owners Drakenstein Stud are fully behind the decision. Naturally, we are all very disappointed and realise that the public expectation with her KZN debut on the launch of the SA Champions Season was extremely high. But we would rather err on the side of caution,” said Jono Snaith.

He assured the public that the daughter of Street Cry was still very much on track for her main mission, the Gr1 Woolavington on 2 June.
