Afleet Rapper returns after lengthy spell

Apr 19, 2011

Afleet Rapper returned to racing last Saturday at Doomben after a lengthy spell due to a tendon injury. The gelding showed promise as an upcoming staying type earlier in his career before his enforced layoff.

He has been in & out of the stables a couple of times during his spell for some physiotherapy & some light work to stretch the tendon without loading it too much.

Both Brian & Jockey Jason Holder were both pleased with his run & agree he is on track.

Fingers are always crossed with these particular injuries but he has come through his first start back very well & has pulled up great.

Look out for him when he steps up in distance.
