Trainer Bobby Frankel reported Boatman, a son of Irish River, developed filling in an ankle and would be unable to compete in the Breeders' Cup Turf. As a result of the Juddmonte Farms runner's defection, Subtle Power, trained by Bill Mott, drew in.
On Monday morning, a flight carrying nine Breeders' Cup horses from Europe arrived in Louisville, Ky. The horses were in their stalls in the quarantine barn by 6:00 a.m.
On the flight were Montjeu, Indian Lodge, Goldamix, Fruits of Love, Distant Music, Noverre, Bertolini, Kingsalsa, and Dansili.
Four horses trained by Aidan O'Brien, including Classic contender Giant's Causeway, are due to arrive Tuesday morning. Also on the flight from Ireland will be Bernstein, La Vida Loca, and Turnberry Isle.
