|Frankel To Resume Training|
The Bloodhorse.com reports that Juddmonte Farm’s Frankel, the top rated horse in the world, has been cleared to resume training after an ultrasound scan April 18 did not reveal any tendon damage.
The scan was conducted after the undefeated colt sustained what was called a “superficial” injury to his off-foreleg during a gallop at Newmarket April 11. X-Rays taken of the 4-year-old son of Galileo immediately after the incident showed he had sustained no bone damage.
Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager for Prince Khalid Abdullah, said Frankel will resume a normal training schedule, with no “set agenda for his future racing program, which will be determined by the progress he makes.”
Grimthorpe said the JLT Lockinge Stakes at Newbury, for which the champion colt was being pointed prior to the injury, has not been ruled out.
Trained by Sir Henry Cecil, Frankel is nine-for-nine with five group I victories and earnings of $2,210,961. He hasn’t raced since last October at Ascot and is rated the top horse on the World Thoroughbred Rankings.
