Massaat’s season is over
Massaat, runner-up in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, will not run again this season.
Massaat: Won't run again this season
Trainer Owen Burrows has decided to draw stumps with the Teofilo colt after he struggled upon his return from a long absence at Salisbury last month.
Massaat will, however, stay to training next season.
"He's finished for the year," said the Newmarket handler.
"He'll have a break now and we will bring him back next year. He is back at Shadwell.
"There is nothing major wrong with him, we've just found a few niggly problems.
"But they are enough to explain the poor run at Salisbury and enough to put a stop to his year.
"All being well, we will start him off back over a mile next year.
"He is only lightly raced and we are still learning about him."
