It’s last thing you want so close to a big race. But the big chestnut, SIR MOMENTS has injured his off hind leg whilst playfully kicking out on the walking machine.
Whilst the prognosis is good a bitterly disappointed trainer Steve O’Dea has decided not to accept for Saturday’s GROUP 1 feature.
The DOOMBEN CUP was the primary aim of this preparation and was to represent only the second GROUP 1 contested for the son of CHOISIR. His only elite level appearance resulted in a midfield finish two years ago in the JJ ATKINS at Eagle Farm. However after a decent rest, the outlook is encouraging for SIR MOMENTS who’ll spell at Kolora Lodge after resting for the week at O’Dea’s Eagle Farm stables.
