International stayer and Australian cult horse Prince Of Arran’s future racing career remains in doubt after the horse had another slow start and disappointing run in Saudi Arabia over the weekend.
The globetrotting stayer has been placed in the past three Melbourne Cups and has become Australia’s favourite International but it is looking unlikely the horse will be returning to our shores again with trainer Charlie Fellowes casting doubt on his future racing career.
“All plans on hold for PRINCE OF ARRAN for the time being after a 2nd very slow start in a row,” he tweeted. “He owes us absolutely nothing and we will take our time before making any further decisions on his future. He is safe and well after his race and flies back to England on Monday.” Fellowes tweet read.
Prince Of Arran was heavily backed in the $2 million Red Sea Turf Handicap at Riyadh but finished well down the track in an otherwise disappointing outing after a slow start.
Prince Of Arran currently sits at the head of Melbourne Cup odds with bookmaker Sportsbet at $15 alongside Tiger Moth.
