Six-year-old Rebel Raider has come out of retirement in order to attempt to win back-to-back Spring Stakes titles at Morphettville Racecourse this Saturday August 6, 2011.
The Reset entire has been out of work for almost a year after fracturing a bone in his leg last year.
“He fractured a sesamoid in the Makybe Diva (Stakes) at Flemington last year and the vets advised us that was it for him because it was such a bad injury,” Co-trainer Andrew Gluyas said.
“The horse was on the breeding merry-go-round there for a while before the owners decided to put him back into work.
“They wanted to see if he could sustain being kept in training and he’s done that now up to this point.
“He’s done enough concussion-type work to say that the injury isn’t going to worry him again.”
Gluyas is confident that Rebel Raider is mentally prepared for the 2011 Spring Stakes, it is just his horse racing form that is in question.
“Mentally, all the indications are that he is ready to go but ultimately racing’s always going to be the judge of that.
“It’s going to be an interesting day because it’s always good to get a genuine Group horse back at the races.”
