Plans for Turn It Up to resume in the New Year have had a setback after his recovery programme was interrupted last week -and it could be ongoing depending on his immediate progress.

“He was doing well. He had finished his schedule of being boxed after his knee operation and was set to do month on the water walker” co-owner and trainer Mark Purdon said.

“But after a week they weren’t that happy with his progress and he has gone back to box rest. They are still concerned about how it looks and so a lot will depend on what happens next”

Last season’s Auckland Cup, Easter Cup and Harness Jewels winner was a star of the season with 11 wins and four seconds in 15 career starts.

The decision was made to bypass any chance of a NZ Cup preparation so as not to take any risks with his knees and his racing plans were aimed at Australia in the New Year with targets like the Hunter Cup and Miracle Mile .Those plans are now under threat.

“It is really bad luck and after we took the path of lesser risk after the Jewels” a disappointed Mark said

“We will just have to see how it develops but it was news we didn’t need at this stage”
