Crack A Roadie Out of Mornington But Still 2013 Blue Diamond Chance

Cranbourne trainer Stephen Theodore has been forced to scratch top colt Crack A Roadie from the $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) at Mornington today but hasn’t ruled out a first-up crack at the $1 million 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) on Saturday week.

The two-year-old was to make a much-anticipated return but got himself cast in a box overnight, knocking his fetlock joint and taking skin off his leg.

Theodore said it is only a minor concern but didn’t want to take a risk with a horse who he believes has a big future and can make a genuine impact in some big autumn juvenile events.

“He’s not lame at all…my vet and staff all watched him trot up and you wouldn’t know there was an issue,” Theodore told Racing Network.

Theodore has never held back in his admiration for Crack A Roadie and admitted that if it was “any other horse” they would probably still run.

“There could be something there which could turn into a problem and I won’t risk that,” he said.

Crack A Roadie was due to start as favourite in the Inglis Premier after bursting on to the scene last spring.

After plenty of hype from his trainer, the son of Charge Forward produced a stunning finish to win the $255,000 Inglis Banner Stakes on debut in October before running a narrow second in the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate.

The exciting youngster occupies the fifth line of Blue Diamond betting at $14. Current joint favourites for Melbourne’s premier two-year-old event are Adelaide filly Miracles Of Life and Darley’s Guelph ($3.20).
