Alexandrova may not run again

 

Racing: Triple Oaks heroine Alexandrova looks to have run her last race.

The winner of last year's Epsom, Irish and Yorkshire Oaks has been off the track since finishing third to Mandesha in the Prix de l'Opera 11 months ago.

She was scheduled to reappear at York last month only for a muscle problem to rule her out just 24 hours before the race.

Trainer Aidan O'Brien said: "I don't know whether she will race again. She was a bit stiff before she ran in York so missed that race and she still isn't quite right.

"Because of who she is you wouldn't dream of taking any chances with her and it is possible you won't see her again."

After finishing unplaced on her debut, Alexandrova has won or been placed on her other eight career starts and has amassed £652,264 in prize money.
