Light career hangs in balance

first_img The Aidan O’Brien-trained four-year-old, who also won the St Leger last season, was badly hampered by the eventual winner Forgotten Rules in the British Champions Long Distance Cup, and the result of the incident was injuries to both his front legs. O’Brien feels the setback may be enough to force the son of Montjeu into retirement. Ascot Gold Cup winner Leading Light may have run his last race after picking up a nasty injury at Ascot on Saturday.

It’s very disappointing.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
