Usherette: reasons have surfaced after her disappointing run in the Falmouth Stakes
Image by

Andre Fabre reports Usherette to have bled in last week’s Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket.

After impressing at Royal Ascot, the four year old filly trailed home sixth behind Alice Springs in the seven-runner Group One.

Fabre said: “She was scoped after the race and it showed up that she had bled.”

He added: “On a scale of five, she was a two.

“It’s a bit indeterminate at the moment to guess how long she will be out, I need to discuss it with my vets.”
