Front Page Injured, Out of The Kosciuszko

Trainer Geoff Duryea has scratched his sprinter Front Page from Saturday’s The Kosciuszko, after the galloper became fractious in its float while being transported.

It is confirmed that the horse sustained injuries to its near side eye and off hind leg, and is not in suitable condition to race on Saturday.

Slot holder William Farrer Hotel have selected Prairie Fire as Front Page’s replacement, with the runner to jump from barrier 8.

Prairie Fire is currently a $61 chance in The Kosciuszko.
