TIMELINE..05-03-2020 Apache Too pulled up a bit stiff and sore in the hind section after his race on Fri night and post-race assessments by the Vet, Chiro and Physio have found nothing specific or red flaggable. He’s fresh and active a few days on (see video) and will now continue with therapy on the farm, combined with rest until he’s fluid smooth.
28-02-2020Apache Too goes handy from a wide draw, travelling sweetly all the way until the home straight where he fails to respond favourably when asked. He had an interrupted prep and was short on work so it was expected that he was likely to tire late, and on top the race was run in pouring rain on a waterlogged polytrack, which may have also contributed to his lack of finish. 31-01-2020 Apache Too has been scratched from racing on Sunday as a precautionary measure due to his jockey reporting him ‘not feeling right behind’ details below.. Looking all clear on cursory trotting test under saddle. He’s never shown any signs of unsoundness here in KZN, however the Stipes’ reports for both his last 2 races in JHB (prior to arrival), state ‘not striding out’ amongst other things, so we’ve been on the constant lookout for any hint of trouble. Personally I’ve noticed no changes but after receiving the jockey’s trackwork feedback of ‘not right behind’, we got the vet in to take a look. He’s found that A2 is a bit tight behind and suspects the sacroiliac but is not sure. Treatment has commenced with instructions to handwalk him for 2 days and then into light work from Monday to Friday next week when he will get a follow up examination.
