Danon Chantilly has been scratched from Sunday’s Japanese Derby with a broken right hind leg, the Japan Racing Association said Saturday.

The 3-year-old colt won the NHK Mile Cup three weeks ago with a Japanese 1,600-meter turf race record of 1 minute, 31.4 seconds.

Danon Chantilly was the third pick as of Friday for the Derby at Tokyo Racecourse.
