Following two below par performances on the racecourse this season a thorough veterinary examination has been carried out on Summerville Boy by Ian Wright at Newmarket Equine Hospital. The results of the bone scan have revealed a hairline fracture of the right hind femur. Surprisingly he’s been sound throughout and has shown no signs of discomfort which is a testament to his toughness as a racehorse. The injury is partially healed and he will continue with light training to help build the muscle surrounding the area before a further x-ray/scan in 6 weeks time, a decision will then be made as to whether or not we step up his work for a Spring campaign.
