Golden Horde | Scoop Dyga

Golden Horde (Ire) (Lethal Force {Ire}) is out of contention for the Oct. 17 G1 QIPCO British Champions Sprint S. after sustaining a setback, the Racing Post reported on Sunday. The AlMohamediya Racing colourbearer won the G1 Commonwealth Cup S. at Royal Ascot earlier this season, before running third in the July 11 G1 Darley July Cup S. and fifth in the Aug. 9 G1 LARC Prix Maurice de Gheest at Deauville. The 3-year-old colt reported home third in the G1 Betfair Sprint Cup S. at Haydock when last seen on Sept. 5.

“He's not going to be confirmed tomorrow for the race, I'm sorry to say,” trainer Clive Cox told Racing Post. “He was found to be sore after his work on Wednesday and we're just not happy with him. We'll monitor the situation, but we're not going to be able to sigh off the season as intended by running at Ascot. he's been tremendously consistent and winning the Commonwealth Cup first time up this season was amazing.”
