Crown of Thorns Declared from Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile

Spendthrift Farm’s Crown of Thorns, second choice in the morning line at 4-1 for the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile on Saturday at Churchill Downs, was withdrawn from the race Friday morning by trainer Richard Mandella following a “flare up of an old injury.”

The Hall of Fame conditioner noticed a problem with the 5yo son of Repent when he was cooling out following his training gallop Thursday morning.

“There was some heat in his (right front) knee and we checked it and it turns out it was a flare up of an old injury,” Mandella said at Barn 41 Friday morning.  “He’s had an issue with that knee for the past few years and it has come back. It’s nothing real serious; not a fracture or anything like that. But coming up to a race like this there’s just no way you could think about running him given the circumstances.

“It’s the kind of thing where I think we can do a procedure on him, give him a little time off and bring him back for next year. That’s a possibility. It’ll be up to Mr. Hughes (Spendthrift owner B. Wayne Hughes). I spoke to him about it this morning and he’s disappointed, of course, and considering his options.”
