Oxx mystified by Hartani flop
Trainer John Oxx has no immediate plans for Hartani after being slightly disappointed with his run in the Irish St Leger.
The three-year-old colt, owned by the Aga Khan, was only eighth of nine behind Royal Diamond in the staying Classic at the Curragh on Saturday.
"It was a little bit disappointing. I don't think he quite ran his race," said the Curragh handler.
"There wasn't any great pace. It was a sprint at the end and it was a bunch finish. They were all on top of each other.
"He requires a test of stamina which he didn't get, so it was a bit of a non-event for him.
"I'm not sure where he'll go next. We haven't made any plans yet."
