Tavago Inspected Ahead Of Possible Schweppes Sydney Cup Start

Racing NSW Senior Official Veterinarian, Dr Craig Suann and Racing NSW Stewards this morning conducted an inspection of Tavago (NZ) following the gelding having been found to be lame in the off fore leg after finishing last in The BMW at Rosehill Gardens on 25 March 2017.

Co-trainer Trent Busuttin advised that scans and x-rays conducted on the off fore leg by his stable veterinarian had not revealed any abnormality. Mr Busuttin also advised that the horse's condition had improved significantly since last Saturday.

Dr Suann reported that his inspection at the trot today, subsequent to the gelding doing slow work this morning, had established the gelding's condition had improved since Saturday and whilst the gelding is a poor mover in front, there was no discernible favouring of either foreleg.

A sample was taken from Tavago for analysis by the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory.

Mr Busuttin advised that consideration was now being given to starting Tavago in the Schweppes Sydney Cup, subject to the gelding continuing to please the stable and his veterinarian.

Stewards advised Mr Busuttin that a veterinary clearance would be required prior to Tavago being required to barrier trial to the satisfaction of the Stewards. Mr Busuttin advised that his intention was to barrier trial the gelding at the Gosford trials on Tuesday, 4 April 2017.

Dr Craig Suann will again examine the gelding prior to and following the barrier trial to ascertain its suitability to take its place in the Sydney Cup at Royal Randwick on Saturday, 8 April 2017.
