Eventing: Pau: Laine Ashker Withdraws from Pau CCI4*

Laine Ashker has decided to withdraw her 11 year old thoroughbred Anthony Patch from the Pau CCI4* to be contested this coming weekend in France.  

Ashker released the following statement on her website:
"It is with my utmost apologies that I have to withdraw my entry from Pau CCI****. Just last week a slight lameness appeared and was diagnosed as acute arthritis. Unfortunately, due to the timing of the event, steroids could not be injected...and the IRAP was not as effective as we'd hoped. Therefore I cannot send my horse across the pond knowing he is not 100%. I'm very sorry for the last minute decision and I hope you all understand. We will live to fight another day and win another four star. Thank you again."

The United States will be represented in the  Pau CCI4* solely by Boyd Martin and the Hanoverian gelding Remington XXV.
Both Ashker and Martin were recipients of  USEF competition grants for Pau.
