COX PLATE RUNNER OUT LONG TERM

An injury setback has seen a former Cox Plate placegetter ruled out for the long term after an expected Sydney campaign has been cut short due to a tendon issue and leaves Ciaron Maher and David Eustace with a long road to recovery

Armory set for a long lay off after injury

Maher and Eustace had been aiming for a big Autumn Campaign with recent stable recruit Armory, who finished second to the late Sir Dragonet in the 2020 Cox Plate, but now a tendon injury has put a stop on all proceedings. 


The stallion had been racing in the UK for the Aidan O’Brien stable where he had won a Group 2 contest in Chester as well as placing in a Group 1 during the Royal Ascot festival before a recent sale saw Armory transition down under.

Co-trainer David Eustace confirmed Armory had been heading towards a big Autumn Campaign but now will head straight to the recovery room.

“He has a tendon injury, which is terrible news for the owners,” Eustace said.

“He was galloping and was going very well.

“He was working like his form suggests, that he’s a top class horse, so it’s very disappointing.

“He’ll rehab but he’s nine to 12 months off racing.”

It’s disappointing for the stable and Armory’s new owners after the son of Galileo was going punch for punch with some of the best racehorses in the world including a third to Magical and Ghaiyyath in the Irish Champion Stakes in 2020. 

Armory will now spend the next twelve months on the road to recovery after having been prominent in betting for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes and Tancred Stakes which of course will now need to go on hold until the next year.
