Old Deuteronomy to Miss Breeders' Cup

Mrs. John Magnier's Old Deuteronomy, part of Irish trainer Aidan P. O'Brien's powerful aresenal, will not be shipped to Southern California for Saturday's Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships at Santa Anita.

A Breeders' Cup official said the reason for the defection by Storm Cat -- Jewel in the Crown (by Seeking the Gold) colt was not immediately known and that they were waiting for a veterinary report to be sent from Ireland.

The winner of one of six races and multiple group-placed, Old Deuteronomy was one of two O'Brien horses pre-entered in the Bessemer Trust Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I).

As a result of the defection, Everest Stable's Mambo Train will draw into the race.
