QLD STAR TO HAVE SURGERY

One of Queensland's homebred heroes is set to undergo surgery that will keep him out of racing during the winter but is expected to return for the states new slot race at Toowoomba with riches on the line in the New Year
Soxagon undergoes surgery!!

Soxagon has had surgery on both his front joints over the weekend but is expected to return and be fit in time for Queensland's new slot race to be held in Toowoomba at the end of the year.

Soxagon has somewhat of a rags to riches story having been bred by Courier Mail sports editor Brian Burke out of a mare who cost just $600 and ended up having one of the noticeable Winter Carnival performances.

Trained by Mark Currie, Soxagon gained late entry into the Group One Stradbroke Handicap after powering to victory in the BRC Sprint at Group 3 level. 

Unfortunately though and after winning two races already at the Winter Carnival, Soxagon was unable to replicate his great form and finished 15th in the Stradbroke, just under 10 lengths off the winner Alligator Blood. 

After the race Medical scans showed that there was an issue with his front joints, however Currie confirmed that the procedure was relatively small and his runner underwent clean up surgery over the weekend.

Currie believes the surgery isn’t anything to worry about and his runner should be fighting fit to claim a place in the $750,000 slot race, King of The Mountain which is set to be run on New Years Eve this year.

“He just went in for surgery to clean things up a bit,” Currie said.

“He will be back in two months to exercise.

“He will have to be performing when he comes back, but if he is we would really like him to get a slot in that new Toowoomba race.”
