Tony Gollan’s Group 1 winner Krone is lame and has been ruled out of Sydney carnival

Outstanding mare Krone has been ruled out for the remainder of the Sydney autumn carnival after being found to be lame but trainer Tony Gollan says at this stage there are no plans to retire the five-year-old.

The Group 1 Coolmore Classic winner was to race next in the Group 1 Coolmore Legacy on Saturday week at Randwick but will now be spelled following the mare being found to be lame in the off fore leg.

Krone has been a glorious galloper for Gollan since going north to be trained in the Sunshine State and the breeding barn has been under consideration at several stages.

However Gollan said the plan, at the moment, was for retirement to wait and for Krone to race on into the spring carnival.

“They (owners) are talking about going another season with her, at this point in time that’s the plan,” Gollan said.

“They have had some offers, I’m not privy to all that but there was an offer from Japan I believe.

“At this stage she is not entered for the broodmare sale.

“The plan at the moment is she is going to have a break then come back for spring.”
