Nordic Empire Officially Scratched From 2014 Magic Millions Field

Nordic Empire has been officially scratched form the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic field, which is set to run at the Gold Coast Racecourse this Saturday January 11, 2014.

The two-year-old was well-backed to feature in the finish of the 2014 Magic Millions 2YO Classic, however, his campaign was thrown into disarray after a track work injury.

Nordic Empire pulled up sore after yesterday’s work and preliminary scans revealed that he had sustained muscle tears.

The Mick Price-trained colt will now been sent for a spell in order to properly heal.

Nordic Empire was due to have his third career run in the 2014 Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

He won his first race starts in the $80,000 Flemington Equine Clinic Plate in November before placing third in his most recent start at Canterbury.

His scratching has granted first emergency, Sagatona, a start in the 2014 Magic Millions 2YO Classic this weekend.

Sagatona is yet to win a race starts, however, has been competitive at all three of her runs.

Her most recent result was a close third placing behind Unencumbered and Stroak in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes at Doomben Racecourse on December 28.

The Real Saga filly is trained by Liam Birchley at Eagle Farm and is coming off a three length barrier trail victory at Deagon on January 2.
