「催化剂」春季不会再上阵

「催化剂」的春季征程已经结束,接下来将在新西兰的橡树育马场休养三个月。

上周六在兰德威克赛马场举行的1100米二级赛消茨大赛上,新西兰明星赛驹「催化剂」  在冲刺阶段未能听令加速,骑师格伦·博斯随后机警地在比赛尚未结束的情况下收慢了它,赛后接受检查,它果然一条前肢被发现了不良于行的问题。

在直路之上,「催化剂」受到过对手的碰撞,但是博斯认为坐骑并不是因此而受伤的,因为在受冲撞之前,马儿的表现就开始反常了。

周一进行X光扫描检查,「催化剂」被排除了严重伤情的状况,但是它接下来需要休养三个月,这意味它今年春季将无法再上阵。

对于这匹去年新西兰两千坚尼赛的冠军赛驹今春只在悉尼上阵了一场就要打道回府,练马师克莱顿·奇珀菲尔德表示失望,但他称周一的检查结果令他感到松了一口气,因为从最初的情况看,该驹很可能需要接受手术治疗,而手术治疗又会引起其他一系列问题,如果真是那样的话,马儿可能需要告别赛场很长时间。

这是「催化剂」第二次在澳洲受伤,秋季赛期里,它在澳洲首战——CS海耶斯锦标赛中仅不敌「鳄鱼之血」获得亚军后,在次战澳洲坚尼赛中第六名过终点,表现远未达预期,随后它也出现了不良于行的问题。
