Starcraft Shuttle Cancelled After Float Injury
Arrowfield Stud announced that due to an injury sustained by 5-time Gr1-winner Starcraft (Soviet Star-Flying Floozie, by Pompeii Court) "during the float trip to meet his flight to the UK, the stallion's 2007 Northern Hemisphere season will have to be aborted". This was to be his 2nd shuttle to Cheveley Park at Newmarket (after serving a book of 106 mares in the 2006 northern season). Starcraft suffered "a laceration to the posterior aspect, just below the point of his off hind hock" & was sent to the Randwick Equine Centre in Sydney for treatment.
