Rupee On Track For TJ

Tuesday, 24th March 2015

Trainer Mick Price says Lankan Rupee remains on track for the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on 4 April, reports ANZ Bloodstock News. The star sprinter was prima facie disappointing when sixth in the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap at Flemington two weeks ago, but was subsequently found to have a torn pectoral muscle and stifle inflammation. However, Price said the 5-time Gr1 winner has been exercising on a water walker after recently undergoing treatment and is doing well. "We'll do some work with him at Caulfield or I might send him to Sydney," Price said. "I'll just have a think about that one, but I think he'll bounce back well."
