Im Victorious - is on the mend.
It is more than a month since Im Victorious suffered a serious tendon injury in the Inter Dominion Grand Final at Tabcorp Park Menangle. The healing process has been a slow one but trainer Michael Brennan is extremely happy with the progress his stable star has made since the incident and is looking forward to being reunited with him in the future.

"Snoop (Im Victorious) is getting daily physio on the injury, he is being looked after over there in Sydney by a great team of people and they are trying to ensure they keep some mobility in his leg despite the excessive scar tissue," Brennan said.

"He will continue the treatment in Sydney for another six weeks or so and after that he should be ready to make his way back home to Perth and live out his days in a paddock on my property, I think he deserves it."

While there had been some speculation that Im Victorious could make a miraculous comeback and return to the racetrack, Brennan believes that it would be highly improbable.

"More than likely he will never be able to race again but to be honest I'm just hoping that he will be 'paddock sound' so I can get him home and spend time with him again."

"His injuries have healed to the point where the vets are no longer concerned with regards to infection in the tendon and now they are just making sure through the physio that too many adhesions don't form and create issues for us."

It has been a tough time for everyone concerned with Im Victorious but Brennan admits he has come to the realisation that he has to move past the devastating loss of the Western Australian Derby winner.

"I had arrived at the point where I just had to move on, there was no point in dwelling on it, the whole situation was very devastating for all of us and now I have to try and find my next star."

Im Victorious won more than $750,000 in his 34 start career and won 22 races.
