Last season’s Japanese Derby winner Kizuna will not race in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe this fall after being diagnosed with a broken left foreleg, the Japan Racing Association announced on Thursday.

Four-year-old Kizuna is believed to have suffered the injury in Sunday’s 3,200-meter Tenno-sho at Kyoto Racecourse, where the Yutaka Take-ridden colt came fourth after starting as the overwhelming favorite.
