Small setback for Conservative – latest update from Scott Dixon
Unfortunately, we have suffered another setback with Conservative.
He finished one of his gallops last week looking very sore. As always when we notice something amiss, we got a physio in to assess the horse and they reported that Conservative has pulled a muscle in his back.
The good news is, it’s not an injury that will keep him out of action for long. He had a session with the physio last Friday where he received a deep massage. I’ve booked another session for him at the end of this week.
Before that setback, Conservative was showing some good signs, and I was starting to think about his next possible race. For now, we will continue to monitor him and assess his injury. Hopefully, I will be able to report some positive news next week.
