Fujaira Prince (Ire) (Pivotal {GB}), the winner of last year's Ebor H. and Copper Horse H. and prominent in the betting for Saturday's G2 Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup, was euthanized on Wednesday morning after suffering an injury on the gallops.

The 7-year-old Fujaira Prince, campaigned by Sheikh Mohammed Obaid with trainer Roger Varian, was third in last year's Long Distance Cup and was set to have his third run of the season on Saturday.

“It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of stable favourite Fujaira Prince, who suffered a fatal injury on the gallops this morning,” Varian said in a statement. “Fujaira Prince was a lovely horse who has given us many special moments, the highlight of those being his success in the Ebor in 2020. He will be much missed by the whole team here at Varian Stable, in particular by his groom Alan Rutter, his work rider Chiara Careddu, barn manager Dee Deacon, and of course by his owner Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum.”
