Single Bullet Passes First Vet Inspection
Single Bullet has been given the green light to run in tomorrow's $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill. Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian, Dr Craig Suann inspected Single Bullet yesterday morning after he became cast in his stable on Wednesday resulting in superficial abrasions to both forelegs. Dr Suann reported there was no swelling or pain associated with the abrasions, and that there was no lameness detected at the trot. Single Bullet (Not a Single Doubt-Cheetara, by More Than Ready) is continuing to receive treatment, including the application of poultices and ice to manage the injuries. A further inspection will be conducted by Dr Suann this afternoon to assess the colt's progress. Trainer Gary Portelli said if there were any doubts concerning Single Bullet's fitness, he would be saved for the $1 million Gr1 ATC Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m) on 1 April.
