Triple G1 Prix de la Foret winner One Master (GB) (Fastnet Rock {Aus}) has been scratched from Saturday's GI Breeders' Cup Mile at Keeneland after suffering from set-fast, or 'tying up.'

Speaking from Newmarket, trainer William Haggas said, “She got a bit set-fast on her first morning out. Her muscle enzymes are too high. I'm disappointed, but very pleased that they are not risking her at all.”

A homebred for Roy and Gretchen Jackson's Lael Stable, the 6-year-old One Master has won the seven furlong Foret on the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe undercard the past three years. She also won the G3 Oak Tree S. at Goodwood in July and was most recently third, beaten a half-length, over the soft ground in the G1 British Champions Sprint S. on Oct. 17.

The scratch means that Aidan O'Brien's G1 Irish Derby fourth Order Of Australia (Ire) (Australia {GB}), a half-brother to last year's G1 Filly & Mare Turf winner Iridessa (Ire) (Ruler of the World {Ire}), draws into the field.
