2010 Melbourne Cup Day Scratchings – Bauer out of Flemington Race 7 Melbourne Cup

The latest 2010 Melbourne Cup Day news is the scratching of the Luca Cumani-trained Bauer from Race 7 at Flemington, the $6 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m).

The eight-year-old Halling gelding, most remembered for his devastatingly close defeat to Viewed in the Melbourne Cup two years ago, has been withdrawn from the 2010 Melbourne Cup after veterinary advice from Racing Victoria vet Geoff Hazard and independent vet Dr Chris Whitten in relation to Bauer’s near fore hoof injury.
