Werther Returns From Injury

Friday, 27th January 2017

Reigning Hong Kong Horse of the Year Werther (Tavistock-Bagalollies, by Zabeel) will make his eagerly awaited comeback from injury in Monday's Gr1 Stewards' Cup at Sha Tin. The John Moore-trained 5YO has been sidelined since suffering a suspensory injury to his right hind leg in track work last August. "Of course there is a lot of expectation any time you have a horse of the year returning, especially when he has rated so highly with his performances," Moore told the South China Morning Post. "But the jury is out with regard to injury, so there is an element of wait-and-see. But he is a very clean-winded horse, like Rapper Dragon, and maybe is the type of horse that could just come out and do something that could surprise some people."
