Following Airfree’s race at Sapphire at the beginning of the month, we weren’t happy with how she was stretching out in her work and she looked to be sore in her back. She was given a week of lunging so she could be worked without a saddle and rider on to give her back a break and she had a visit from the physio last week.

Since the physio treatment, and with the ongoing stretches and exercises she has been give to do, she is moving a lot better and was able to do some 3/4 pace on Tuesday morning. We think she will be right to race again next week and plan to nominate her for Canberra on the 8th of March.
