The Bostonian - Kingsford Smith Cup

The future racing career of The Bostonian is in doubt

Multiple Group One winning sprinter The Bostonian has been ruled out of the remainder of the spring with the horses future racing career also in doubt.

The Bostonian pulled up short in a routine gallop this week prompting connections to take x-rays which have returned showing the horse has taken a small piece off his sesamoid bone.

“Unfortunately, he pulled up a little bit short in front after a gallop on Thursday morning,” Pike said.

“We have taken some x-rays of his front fetlock and with a bit of inflammation in there it looks like he has taken a small piece off his sesamoid bone, so he is out for the spring.

Trainer Tony Pike is hoping a three to four month break will see the horse recover ahead of a possible Autumn campaign although it is a rather serious injury and connections will do whats right with the horse.

“He loves his racing and we would love to get him back to the track, but obviously we are going to be doing the best thing for the horse.
