Icksta has been eating everything since his third place run at Moruya on Sunday but when he went for a canter on Wednesday morning, he was a bit sore in his off front shin. We will turn him out to the paddock to give him time to fully recover and resume his training in approximately eight weeks.

We are very pleased with how he has come along since arriving at our stables and we think the break will give him time to grow and mature.
