Found to skip Coronation


Found will not run in the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Cup after her second at the Curragh on Sunday.

Aidan O'Brien's mare was second behind Fascinating Rock in the Tattersalls Gold Cup in what was her third run of 2016.

Although she had an entry in the Epsom feature, connections have decided against sending her to the Coronation Cup, with the mare likely to have one more run before a summer break.

"I think it is fair to say she will have other plans after her run on Sunday at the Curragh," said Coolmore's UK representative Kevin Buckley.

"She will skip Epsom unfortunately and probably have one more run in the summer, then we will give her a break and bring her back for an autumn campaign."

Bondi Beach and Highland Reel are also set to skip the Group 1 due to recent outings.

"Bondi Beach, has run recently and we will probably wait until mid-June with him. Highland Reel has run twice this year and has got a lot of air miles already and will probably not be totally ready to run in 10 days time," said Buckley.
