Scans For Xtravagant

Wednesday, 5th October 2016

Xtravagant (Pentire-Axiom, by Zabeel) has arrived home from Melbourne and he will undergo bone scans this week, reports NZ Racing Desk. The dual Gr1 winner was a shadow of his former self in his two Australian starts this preparation, finishing towards the tail of the field in both the Gr2 Bobbie Lewis Quality and the Gr1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes. Te Akau Racing principal David Ellis said they hoped Xtravagant was 100 per cent with no underlying issues, but if the scans revealed anything amiss it would help them to understand his disappointing Australian campaign.
