Poor Bloodwork Likely Culprit in Supremacy's Pavilion Run

Clive Cox | Emma Berry

Group 1 winner Supremacy (Ire) (Mehmas {Ire}), who ran eighth and last in the G3 Pavilion S. as the 10-11 crowd's pick at Ascot on Apr. 28, returned a poor blood test after the race, trainer Clive Cox announced on Wednesday.

Trainer Clive Cox said, “We have had a less than perfect blood result from him. We're leaving no stone unturned in the hope of rectifying the situation, which was far below expectations. We've had many tests–and without having a complete conclusion yet, we're hoping we can get him back on the right track.”

A first-crop son of Champion First-Season Sire Mehmas (Ire) (Acclamation {GB}), they bay won the G2 Richmond S. last July and added the G1 Juddmonte Middle Park S. in September in his latest pair of racecourse outings.

Cox added, “He's a horse of such a high standard–undoubtedly we wouldn't have been there if we hadn't been happy with him. Although he's got such a laid-back temperament and way about him, it's a just a relief.

“It's flagged up less than perfect, which wasn't the case before. We've got a bit of time to decide what's next, and hopefully that will become clear over the couple of weeks.”
