Lord Of The Sky Out Of Spring

Tuesday, 28th July 2015

Talented Melbourne sprinter Lord Of The Sky (Danerich-Princess Abassi, by Abassi) has been ruled out of the spring carnival after sustaining a leg injury in Saturday's Gr3 Bletchingly Stakes at Caulfield, reports Sky Racing. Trainer Robbie Laing feared the 4YO had bowed a tendon but scans revealed the injury was not as severe as first thought. "Overnight (Saturday night) his off-front leg from his knee down to his fetlock joint blew up like a football and it looked like a bowed tendon to me," Laing told RSN radio yesterday. "It was about three inches thick and full of jelly and fluid." He added: "There's a very slight tear up under his knee, which must have let go a lot of fluid after injuring it, but it doesn't look like it's the end of the road." Laing said Lord Of The Sky would be given plenty of time to recuperate and would be out until at least the autumn. "I can envisage him doing beach work in January, February and we'll have a good gauge on him then whether to continue on or whether he will need longer," he said.
