News in Brief

Abusive messages sent to trainers estimated to have dropped by a third

Abusive and malicious messages to trainers are estimated to have dropped by a third since a new reporting service was launched by the National Trainers Federation (NTF) last year. Headed by retired former police superintendent Sean Memory, the service has also been adopted by the Professional Jockeys Association in an attempt to hold the senders of malign communications to account through regulatory or criminal proceedings.

Oaks heroine Ezeliya retired following training setback

Ezeliya, impressive three-length winner of the Oaks in May, has been retired following a setback in training this week. The Dermot Weld-trained filly was having only her fourth start at Epsom when beating Dance Sequence and ten other rivals under Chris Hayes, and giving owner-breeder the Aga Khan a first success in the Classic.

King George next for Auguste Rodin

Auguste Rodin will return to the scene of his Prince of Wales’s triumph later this month as Aidan O’Brien eyes the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot en route to a possible tilt at the Japan Cup in November.
