Jack Hobbs Comeback Scheduled For September
Meanwhile, last season's Irish Derby winner Jack Hobbs (Halling-Swain's Gold, by Swain) is expected to make his return to racing in September, reports Sky Sports. The Godolphin-owned 4YO looked set for a lucrative 2016 campaign but suffered a stress fracture to his pelvis when pulling up on his seasonal reappearance in the Gr2 Jockey Club Stakes at Newmarket on 30 April. "Jack Hobbs is doing fine and he's in light walking exercise at the minute and he's fully sound," trainer John Gosden said from Royal Ascot this week. "The plan is to come back in September."
