Norzita suffers setback

September 05, 2013 15:54:12 UK

Norzita has been ruled out of the spring campaign after being struck down by a tendon injury and there is a question mark over whether she will race again.

The dual Group One winner was due to race in the Tramway Stakes at Randwick this weekend and only yesterday morning was trainer James Cummings singing her praises.

However news filtered through later in the day that Norzita had not pulled up well after her trackwork and was out for the spring.

"She was right straight after the gallop, and even when she got back to the stables, it was just when she completely cooled down (there was a problem)," Cummings said.

"(Vet) Chris O'Sullivan wasn't happy with her, he whipped her up to the clinic and we found out at 10am she had upset her off fore tendon.

"She will go to Think Big Stud and be given the best of care in the hope that she can recover from this injury."

Cummings also said it was too early to say if the horse had run its last race and will be keeping everything crossed that she makes a full recovery.

Norzita was scheduled to run in the George Main Stakes, then the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) in Melbourne, but such plans are now up in the air.

Norzita was also expected to go off as favourite in the Group 3 Tramway but Royal Descent has now taken favouritism.
