BROWNIES'S BLOG: SPINE-TINGLING BIG RACE ACTION AND SOME CONTROVERSY MADE RIVETING VIEWING

By Damian Browne | Wednesday, March 4, 2020

In last week’s blog I highlighted the feast of racing that was about to be delivered by the southern states and boy did that prediction prove to be spot on.

Saturday’s racing, both in Melbourne and Sydney, was quite outstanding. It really was terrific … and if that’s what’s coming up over the coming months, again, we have plenty to look forward to.

Alligator Blood’s win in the Australian Guineas was an obvious highlight from a Queenslander’s point of view.

Again, you have got to wonder how could that not take something out of him. It was an effort and a half with that $200 chance taking him on early. I thought that might have softened him up but to kick at the furlong and put them away like that … that was pretty impressive.

It does seem that Alligator Blood has pulled up well. David Vandyke put out a release earlier this week confirming that Alligator Blood has, subsequent to his latest run, had X-rays of the feet, knees, and fetlocks. It was all good. David added that his coat is good. He is eating well and that he did some ridden work and his track rider said his action felt normal.

Some mild soreness was identified in the hind muscles but David considered that to normal coming off the back of such a hard run at the elite level. David concluded by saying, ‘We will treat him during this week with his regular practitioners (chiropractors, physios etc) and we are confident to have him in pristine condition for the All-Star Mile.'

Geez, imagine if I was looked after that well!

Joking aside, that is obviously great news for the ever-increasing number of Alligator Blood fans and it looks like another big day awaits on March 14.
