CLASSIQUE LEGEND ON ROAD TO RETURN

Its been a torrid few years for Everest winner Classique Legend but now trainer Les Bridge believes his stable star isn’t far away from being able to compete at the top grade once again after recovering from injury that had ruled him out of an Autumn campaign

Classique Legend Set to retun from Injury

Classique legend has almost fully recovered from a suspensory ligament injury that ruled the Grey six year old out since the Spring and now trainer Les Bridge says his stable star is likely to begin a campaign aimed at a fourth start in the $15m Everest.

Trainer Bridge confirmed earlier in the week that recent scans had shown that the ligament had now healed and Classique Legend could be heading back to the track in the near future.

“We are all quite happy with the scans and the plan is to have the horse back in my (Randwick) stables in about six weeks,’’ Bridge said.

“This will give us plenty of time to get him ready for the spring and The Everest again.’’

Classique Legend hasn’t been seen at the track since his fifth place finish behind Nature Strip in last year's Everest. 

Bon Ho is the owner of Classique Legend and with him already owning one of the slots for the Everest it is likely that if the grey gelding can retain his form that saw him win the race in 2020 he is all but certain to regain his starting birth for the $15m contest for a fourth consecutive year. 

“These suspensory injuries are not as bad as a tendon although they are slow to heal,’’ Bridge said.

“But in my experience horses can bounce back to their best form after injuring a suspensory.

“You have to remember Classique Legend might be a rising seven-year-old but he’s so lightly raced (14 starts) and the signs are good we can get him back in the spring.’’

In early TAB Fixed Odds betting on The Everest, Classique Legend is on the second line of betting at $9 with Eduardo, Home Affairs and Mazu behind Nature Strip at $4.
