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.
