King Pulse resumes pre-training

By admin | December 11, 2010

King Pulse (4yo g Canny Lad – Pleasure Ground by Arena) has returned to Mike Moroney’s Ballymore stables at Flemington after an extensive rehabilitation period.  King Pulse sustained multiple injuries as a result of the freak storms following the running of the VRC Newmarket Handicap (Grp 1) at Flemington in March.  During the mayhem caused by the sudden hail and wind, King Pulse slipped and jumped a fence and became wedged between two rails sustaining a fractured shoulder, numerous lacerations and a displaced hip bone.   King Pulse was sent to Keysborough Equine following initial treatment and assessments at Werribee Vet Clinic after the raceday accident.  King Pulse’s first ten weeks were confined to the stable and he was able to complete his recuperation period on our property. Commenting on King Pulse’s return to training, Ballymore’s racing manager Anthony Feroce says the stable are quite confident of getting King Pulse back to the races early in the new year. “The signs are looking pretty good” Feroce said earlier this week. “His early work is OK and we hope he’ll be back at the races by February”.  Despite the frustration of King Pulse’s enforced layoff, the year has finished on a far better note for his owners Rohan and Kate Aujard who also race Brazilian Pulse (3yo f  Captain Rio – Sharazad by Tenby) – winner of this year’s VRC Crown Oaks (Grp 1) – also trained by The Ballymore team at Chiquita Lodge.
