Milan's Racing Future Uncertain Following Fracture

The future racing career of Breeders' Cup Turf (gr. IT) runner-up Milan remains uncertain after the 4-year-old suffered a fractured cannon bone during Monday's Peintre Celebre E.B.F. Mooresbridge Stakes at The Curragh, according to a Racing Post report.

A day following the injury trainer Aidan O'Brien told Racing Post, "He is still in Troytown and we probably won't know for a day or so whether he is going to be operated on or whether they will just put a cast on the leg."

The connections of last year's St. Leger (Eng-I) winner had hoped to improve his resume as a flat racing stallion this year by racing the son of Sadler's Wells in prestigious intermediate length events, according to the report.

Monday's 1 1/4-mile race was won by 4-year-old filly Rebelline, who defeated Johannesburg in the Gladness Stakes (Ire-III) earlier this year.
