The 7-year-old French trotter Texas Charm, who was considered the favorite in the upcoming Prix d’Amerique to be raced at Vincennes, Paris, France, has been sidelined because of a broken cannon bone.

Texas Charm, driven by 21-year-old Julien Dubois, won the Prix de Bourgogne a fortnight ago, which was the third test race for the Prix d’Amerique, in a new race record of 1:52.3 (mile rate).

The father of Julien Dubois, Jean Philippe Dubois, who won the Prix d’Amerique last year driving Royal Dream, owns Texas Charm.

Royal Dream is aimed for the Prix d’Amerique and will race on Sunday in the last test race, Prix de Belgique, but has shown some lack of form this year.

Ready Cash, with Texas Charm sidelined, is now the favorite for the Prix d’Amerique, but is not entered in the Prix de Belgique.
