Cape Town - The Justin Snaith-trained Equus Horse of the Year, Legislate, was officially scratched from the J&B Met late on Wednesday afternoon.

It didn’t come as any great surprise as he has been under a cloud since running a shock last place in the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate and subsequently scoping full of mucus in his lungs.

Jonathon Snaith said, “He is 100% healthy but his preparation has not been great. There is too much at stake to risk running another below par race. There used to be four weeks between the Queen’s Plate and the Met but three weeks is just not enough time. It is probably just a week too short. The owners have put us under no pressure and are very much behind us with this decision.”
