Caribbean Blaster will be given the opportunity to return to the racetrack after a minimum six-month layoff.
Trainer Andy Gath confirmed today Caribbean Blaster would stand at stud, as reported by Jason Bonnington yesterday on Gait Speed, and said the Victoria Cup, Chariots of Fire and South Australian Cup champion would be given the opportunity to come back from a suspensory injury.
“He’ll stand at stud and that means a minimum six months off,” Gath said.
“But he’ll get an opportunity to race again.
“You never know. A lot of horses do come back and race after having his type of injury.”
Caribbean Blaster is part-owned by Alabar Bloodstock and has won 24 races from a 79-start career for in excess of $1.1 million in stakes.
