2013 Blue Diamond Stakes Failure Crack A Roadie Shin Sore

Blue Diamond Stakes 2013 failure Crack A Roadie can be forgiven for his last-place performance after pulling up chronically shin sore.

Trainer Stephen Theodore was confident of his charge’s chances heading into the $1 million juvenile feature and he received strong support in betting .

But the Charge Forward colt never looked a chance, settling at the back of the field from the outset and never getting going, eventually finishing 22 1/2 lengths behind winner Miracles Of Life at the back of the 14-horse field.

Theodore has a massive opinion of the emerging galloper but will now save him for the spring.

Crack A Roadie will be sent for a two-month spell before coming back as what Theodore hopes will be a 2013 Caulfield Guineas contender.

“I sent him out for a trot and canter yesterday morning and the rider came back half way into the first lap and said the horse didn’t know which leg to put on the ground first – horribly shin-sore,” Theodore revealed.

It is a disappointing way for the exciting colt’s autumn end after he signalled plenty of potential during the spring.

He won the $255,000 Inglis Banner Stakes to plenty of hype on debut before finishing a narrow second in the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate.

Theodore is remaining positive, suggesting an extended rest will do wonders for his stable star.

“We didn’t get the chance to give him much of a break after the Spring last year, so we can now and after two months we’ll have a look at him,” he said.

Crack A Roadie’s autumn may be over but the action is just heating up and the best place to back a winner is bookmaker.com.au!
