Australian officials deny Golden Silca run in Cox Plate.
The Moonee Valley Racing Club committee held a meeting yesterday and
released a statement saying: "Golden
Silca does not currently satisfy the
conditions of the race in that the mare does not have Group 1 or Group 2 form at weight-for-age or at set weights.
"Had the matter of the horse's entry been delayed, Golden Silca's connections would have incurred expense and embarrassment, so the MVRC Committee has acted expeditiously."
The six-year-old's trainer Mick Channon was not too downbeat.
"Obviously they can only have so many running and that's their policy," he said. "I'm not going to make a fuss and there are plenty of other races she can go for instead."
