"Sulamani has suffered a slight stone bruise, which is the reason he did not go to the track this (Thursday) morning," Crisford said. "He has not missed any work, and we are currently monitoring the situation. We hope to resume training tomorrow (Friday)."
Sulamani, winner of the group I Prix du Jockey-Club (French Derby) last spring and runner-up in the group I Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe last October while still a sophomore, showed his best form this year when he captured the grade I Dubai Sheema Classic at Nad al Sheba March 29. In his most recent trip to the post July 26, the 4-year-old son of Hernando finished second in the group I King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot while conceding 12 pounds to the winner. Godolphin is seeking the 100th group or grade I win of its 10-year history with Sulamani in Saturday's Arlington Million.
