Arinosa has been ruled out of the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap, which will run at Eagle Farm racecourse this Saturday June 8, 2013.
The five-year-old has been scratched due to a foot abscess and will now be saved for the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara on June 22.
Trainer Chris Wallerfeels that missing the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap was the best option for Arinosa.
“She has a very mild foot abscess and I need to treat it properly with anti-inflammatories and antibiotics,” Waller said.
“Rather than try and patch it up for this week, I want to make sure I have her right for the Tatts Tiara.
“In hindsight, it was probably brewing away (when she was beaten at Doomben) last start.”
Arinosa finished fourth of 16 runners in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes last start, despite being the race favourite.
The Dash For Cash mare has won eight of her 27 race starts and has earned more than $468,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
The withdrawal of Arinosa now means that Fontelina will be granted a start in the $1.35 million race.
Fontelina won the Listed Luskin Star Stakes at Scone last start and will be looking to claim her first Group 1 title in the race.
