Blow For Watson As Bradsell Ruled Out For The Season With Injury


Bradsell | Tattersalls

Bradsell (GB) (Tasleet {GB}), the brilliant G2 Coventry S. winner, has been ruled out for the rest of the season after picking up an injury in the G1 Phoenix S. at the Curragh on Saturday. 

Sent off favourite in that race, Bradsell stumbled leaving the stalls under Hollie Doyle and could only manage fourth behind the ultra-impressive Little Big Bear (Ire) (No Nay Never).

The injury was confirmed by the colt's trainer Archie Watson in a statement, “Bradsell unfortunately sustained a season-ending injury in the Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh on Saturday. 

“I would like to thank the team at Sycamore Lodge Equine Hospital for their excellent veterinary care and attention.”

He added, “I am naturally very disappointed for Victorious Racing and all the team at Saxon Gate but we look forward to having him back on the racecourse in 2023.”
