Master O'Reilly 2nd Scratching From Gr1 Caulfield Cup
Soon after, Racing Victoria stewards also announced 2007 Caulfield Cup winner Master O'Reilly has been withdrawn from this year's renewal of the race after the Danny O'Brien stable informed them this morning that the horse had suffered "a bout of colic". Master O'Reilly (now an 8YO) was to have lined up in his 4th successive Caulfield Cup (he finished 7th in 2008 & 6th in 2009). His scratching paves the way for New Zealand visitor Red Ruler to take his place in the field.
