NZ 2YO Gr1 Choice Bro Out With Hairline Fracture
Australian-bred and juvenile Gr1 winner in NZ, the colt Choice Bro (Choisir-Ladidi, by Palace Music) has suffered a hairline crack to a hind cannon-bone. He will be confined to a box for several weeks, and then will spend time on the water walker as part of the recovery process. Trainer John Sargent told www.theinformant.co.nz, "That will be the way to go to begin with, but the injury and the time he will need to recover has ruled out the first half of the season. Hopefully he'll still be able to make it back for racing after Christmas."
