Surgery For Designs On Rome

Wednesday, 20th May 2015

Reigning Hong Kong Horse of the Year Designs On Rome (Holy Roman Emperor-Summer Trysting, by Alleged) will miss net week's Gr1 Champions & Chater Cup to have surgery to remove a bone chip from his fetlock, reports the South China Morning Post. The 5-time Gr1 winner was a notable absentee from the Champions & Chater Cup entries when they were published on Monday and trainer John Moore said the star middle distance galloper was done for the season, but would be back. "I'm not concerned longer term - he had a little bit of filling in a joint and we had that examined and X-rayed and he has a small bone chip there that has to be removed," Moore said Monday from Brisbane. "So Designs On Rome will have that operation on Tuesday and then rest until next season. But I'm very confident that he will be back as good as ever."
