Artorius will head to the spelling paddock
The Anthony & Sam Freedman stable have advised Racing NSW Stewards today that Artorius will be spelled and not race again during the Autumn Carnival.
Artorius won the G1 Blue Diamond Stakes prior to running in Saturday’s Golden Slipper where he finished sixth behind Stay Inside.
The run of Artorius in the Golden Slipper saw his odds slashed for the Inglis Sires however the stable has opted to spell the horse and not press on through the Autumn Carnival.
Bookmaker Sportsbet had Artorius as a $6.50 chance in Inglis Sires odds prior to the news.
Golden Slipper winner Stay Inside will also head for a spell which has left Anamoe as the short priced favourite in Inglis Sires betting.
