Queensland gelding Woorim has been scratched from the Group 1 2013 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) which is of course the marquee event on the Super Saturday program at Flemington.
The 2012 Oakleigh Plate winner was found to be sore and was a forced withdrawal from the $1 million race.
The good news is the weather is fine and the track is currently rated a dead 4, meaning there have been limited scratchings throughout the day.
The Group 1 2013 Australian Cup (2000m) also has just the one withdrawal, with outside hope Eclair Surprise found to be lame by vets on Friday.
Apart from the two Group 1s, other key events on the bumper Flemington program include the Group 2 2013 Blamey Stakes and the Group 2 2013 Kewney Stakes.
