3.6.21. Noduff Caesar (pictured) was back in the kennel today after his operation to relocate the central tarsal bone that he displaced when falling in a trial last week. Of course, it’s too early to tell whether he will ever race – there will be a lengthy period of convalescence followed by more X rays – but even if he doesn’t he will be comfortable for his premature retirement.
There’s no doubt Bertie is otherwise well in himself. He’s been reported to have snaffled other dogs’ food at every opportunity recently which is always a good sign. He was having his second grading trial when he clipped heels with the dog in front and fell.
