Godolphin's Line Of Duty, winner of last year's G1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf, unfortunately suffered a serious injury on the morning Saturday, 26 October and upon veterinary advice, the decision was taken to euthanize him.
Line Of Duty also won the G3 Prix de Conde at two, and has been placed twice at the highest level this year, in the G1 Jacques le Marois and G1 Prix du Moulin. The colt had been pointing to the Breeders' Cup Mile, and was due to arrive in the U.S. this weekend, according to drf.com.
His trainer Charlie Appleby said, “Line Of Duty was a brave horse who has traveled the world over. As well as his brilliant win at the Breeders' Cup, he has performed at the highest level throughout his career and will be sorely missed at Moulton Paddocks.”
