Euchen Glen a doubt for Ebor

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

Euchen Glen requires a scan on an injury before connections can decide whether he can contest next month’s Ebor at York.

Euchen Glen sustained the injury during Saturday’s John Smith’s Cup victory at York and trainer Jim Goldie says at this stage it is unclear if the five-year-old will be able to compete at the Ebor Festival.


“He’s got a bit of heat in a leg. It’s possibly nothing, but possibly worse,” said Goldie, as reported by Sky Sports.


“We’ll scan it this week and will let people know one way or the other, but it was just to let people know he might not be going for the Ebor.


“We’ll let the swelling come down before it’s scanned. It will be done this week, but I sometimes think with these things it’s a bit like you can’t be a little bit pregnant. If it’s a leg, it’s a leg – hopefully it’s not.


“At least it didn’t happen on the morning of the race and I’m pretty sure Usain Bolt never went through his career uninjured. He’s had his moment.”
