Norzita To Miss The Spring

Friday, 6th September 2013

Top-class mare Norzita (Thorn Park-Visique, by Quest for Fame) will miss the remainder of the spring after suffering a soft tissue injury to her off fore-leg, reports racenet.com.au. The Bart & James Cummings-trained 4YO was due to have her second run this campaign in the Gr3 Tramway Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday. "We are devastated that Norzita has upset her off-fore tendon after only having an easy gallop this morning. She will go to Think Big Stud and be given the best of care in the hope that she can recover from this injury," explained James Cummings. The daughter of deceased stallion Thorn Park is the winner of 4 of her 12 career outings including the Gr1 Flight Stakes & Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes. She was also a gallant third behind Sacred Falls & Pierro in last autumn's Gr1 Doncaster Handicap.
