Frankel gets the all clear after injury scare

Updated: April 20, 2012

It has been the news that every horseracing fan has been hoping to hear. Frankel, the unbeaten classic winning superstar, has been given the all clear to resume training after his injury scare last week.

The mighty son of Galileo had been the subject of retirement rumours over the past seven days when it emerged that he had knocked into himself during a piece of work at Newmarket.

While it was found that he had struck into himself, his trainer Sir Henry Cecil revealed to Racing UK that his stable star has been given the all clear and could still make his seasonal debut in the JLT Lockinge Stakes at Newbury next month.

Cecil said “He was scanned this morning – very thoroughly – and everything with his sheath and his tendon is fine.

“I’ve had him walking and trotting and everything seems to have settled down. We’ll resume work and feel our way.

“I’d like to make Newbury if possiblebecause it’s a long time with a horse like that to hang around until Ascot.

“I’ll feel my way but I’m hopeful. If I have to take him somewhere, I’ll take him.”
