St Nicholas Abbey Suffers Setback
Triple Gr1 Coronation Stakes hero St Nicholas Abbey (Montjeu-Leaping Water, by Sure Blade) has suffered a setback while recovering from major surgery, reports thoroughbreddailynews.com. Complications for the 6-time Gr1 winner started earlier in the week. After the son of Montjeu appeared uncomfortable, "Radiographs showed the steel weight-bearing pin in his cannon bone had broken and after consultation, the surgeons decided to take it out." Following a re-cast St Nicholas Abbey is able to put weight on the leg again, although Coolmore has advised the next week is tentative for the exciting stallion prospect.
