Setback Rules Nostrum Out of Guineas

Nostrum (GB) (Kingman {GB}), one of Juddmonte Farms’ Classic hopes for the season, has been ruled out of the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas as well as its Irish and French equivalents.

“Nostrum has had a little setback and he will not run in any of the Guineas,” said Juddm0nte’s racing manager Barry Mahon.

“He just needs a couple of weeks going easy, then hopefully we will have him back for the middle of the summer.

“We’ll just let him tell us. I suppose we will aim for Royal Ascot and if we get there great, but if we don’t, then we will just give him more time.”

Trained by Sir Michael Stoute, Nostrum was unbeaten in his first two starts last year, including the G3 Tattersalls S. at Newmarket. He later finished third to fellow Juddmonte-owned Classic contender Chaldean (GB) (Frankel {GB}) in the G1 Darley Dewhurst S.
