Crystal Ocean has sustained an injury on the gallops, which appears to have ended his racing career.

The Sir Michael Stoute trained five year-old, winner of the Group One Prince of Wales’s Stakes and second in the King George and Juddmonte International Stakes, was pulled up on the Warren Hill Polytrack gallop earlier today.

Peter Stanley, spokesman for owner-breeder Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, said: “Crystal Ocean has had two screws inserted in a hind cannon bone and has come through the surgery successfully. It should in no way affect his future stud career.”
