Scottish injured - misses Emirates

Scottish, Godolphin's brave runner-up in the G1 Caulfield Cup, is lame and now misses Saturday's G1 Emirates Stakes at Flemington.

"He came back from routine exercise OK this morning, but he is unsound on his left fore this afternoon," trainer Charlie Appleby told

"He may have wrenched his fetlock. We have taken veterinary advice and after discussing the matter with John Ferguson, who is currently in America, we decided he should miss the Emirates.

"It's a blow, but hopefully after we take him home, and he can have a nice break, he will make a full recovery and return to Melbourne again next year. He is a cracking horse, as he showed everybody with his gutsy second at Caulfield," the trainer added.
