除外 Context Sentence Possible Error

I’m not sure if this is an error or not, so I thought I’d ask about it here before I send it over to the support team.

The context sentence for 除外 (exception) followed by its translation is as follows.

その馬はソエにより競争除外となりました。
The horse was excluded from the race due to shin soreness.

My issue is that the word “ソエ” should be what the horse was excluded for, but I don’t see a reference to that word in any of the dictionaries I use. At least not pertaining to “shins” or “soreness.” So what gives? Am I missing something here? Or is this just a typo?

For specialized terminology like that, you’re probably better off trying your luck on Google. „ソエ 馬“ gives a lot of hits explaining it in more detail.
