Siskin

The Ger Lyons trained Siskin has reportedly come back from his nightmare at Newmarket " a bit stiff and sore" after the Group One winning colt was withdrawn before the Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes on Saturday.

The juvenile was primed to put his three race unbeaten record on the line in the black type event which would have seen him take part in bis first race away from Ireland but uncharacteristically the two year old reared up and went down in the stalls leaving the stewards and handlers to withdraw him.

Siskin this season has been the champion two yer old winning all of his contests in superb style whilst also landing his trainer his first ever Group One win when the juvenile took the Phoenix Stakes back in August.

The Lyons team are still at a miss as to what happened to their youngster as the son of First Defence is said to be one of the most laid back horses for his owner and nothing like this has ever happened before.

(Credit At The Races) The trainer said: “He’s a bit stiff and sore with superficial cuts and bruises, but nothing that needed stitching. Our vet checked him when he came back and there is nothing lasting.

“None of us know what happened. Colin (Keane) can’t put his finger on it and he was on him.

“I’d say we’re more than likely finished for the year, but we won’t make a call on that until next weekend.”

Prince Khalid Abdullah through his Juddmonte connections was sponsoring the Group One that Siskin was supposed to run in which overall may have been a factor for the big support of the two year old in the lead up for the race.

However, like the rest of us he has no explanation a to why he acted like he did in the stalls and the juvenile if he is to race again this season will have to go through and pass a stalls test.

Teddy Grimthorpe added: "All the signs were he was going to run a big race but now there are a lot of ifs.

"Everyone is incredibly disappointed to say the least and it is so frustrating as we had so much hope. It is a game that tames tigers.

"We were ready and prepared for him to run a big race on what he had been showing at home and the way he had progressed physically."
