Impending Out of Winterbottom

Tuesday, 21st November 2017

Top Godolphin sprinter Impending has been withdrawn from the Gr1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot on 2 December, reports the West Australian. Impending (Lonhro-Mnemosyne, by Encosta de Lago) was ruled out after filling was discovered in a leg last weekend. A winner of the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap and placed in the Gr1 Golden Rose and Gr1 Darley Classic, Impending was set be one of the drawcards for the $1 million sprint feature. “We left the decision as late as we could, but we couldn’t risk putting him on a plane,” Godolphin Australia’s racing and bloodstock manager Jason Walsh said. “It’s a terrible shame because he was primed to run a big race.”
