Phoenix Of Dreams' debut on hold after pulling up lame following final piece of work
It’s very frustrating when things like this happen, but it’s not uncommon, particularly with young horses, and he just appears to have pulled a muscle, so it should just mean a few days rest before we can return him to his usual work routine.
We’d done all his stalls work to get him ready for Newcastle, and he’d taken to it really well, so the positive thing is once he’s over this little setback he’ll be raring to go and ready to make his debut.
We’ll keep everybody updated with his progress, and we’ll keep one eye on the programme over the coming weeks and see what suitable races there are coming up for him.
