Deacon Blues blow for Fanshawe

Deacon Blues has been ruled out for the season due to injury.

Scans taken on Saturday showed the exciting sprinter to have sustained a tear to a tendon in a leg.

Fanshawe said: "We discovered some unusual warmth in his left-fore leg on Friday evening. We had him scanned on Saturday and we found a small tear in a tendon, which I'm afraid rules him out for the season. It's a big blow for the yard and his owners, but with injuries like this you cannot rush them. The main thing is to give him every possible chance of a full recovery."
