Joe Janiak’s brilliant speedster is to return to his native Australia in two weeks after a scan revealed a tear in his near-side suspensory tendon.
Janiak said: “He’s got a tear in his suspensory. It’s not serious - we picked it up pretty early.”
Janiak believes the nine-year-old suffered the injury when finishing second in the King’s Stand Stakes a week ago – although the horse did go on to run fourth in the Golden Jubilee Stakes on Saturday.
“I’d say it happened in the King’s Stand on the hard track,” added the trainer.
“He’s still in Newmarket, we’ve got to get him out of quarantine yet.
“He’ll be going home in a couple of weeks.”
Janiak plans to give the gelding plenty of rest before hopefully aiming him at the 2008 Victorian Spring Carnival back home.
