Statement: Spencer Wilton & Super Nova II withdrawal

14th Sep 2018

Following consultation with the Equestrian Team GBR equine sports medicine team and his owner Jen Goodman, Spencer Wilton has  made the decision to withdraw Super Nova II from today’s Grand Prix Special.

The Horse is not feeling 100% after getting excited in yesterday’s medal ceremony.

Spencer said; “I’m obviously devastated for myself and Jen as we were so looking forward to building on what we achieved in the Grand Prix. Prize givings are not Neville’s favourite thing and normally I wouldn’t do them with him but we’re at a Championship. I helped the team secure qualification for Tokyo 2020 and that’s my primary focus so with that in mind, his welfare was key to this tough decision.”
