Star Mare Under Injury Cloud

Tuesday, 17th October 2017

I Am A Star (I Am Invincible-Star Band, by Dixieland Band) may still be given the opportunity to defend her Gr1 Myer Classic title despite pulling up lame following last Saturday's Toorak Handicap at Caulfield, reports racing.com. Stewards reported the 4YO mare to be lame in her near-fore while trainer Shane Nichols confirmed she had jarred up badly when finishing last (18th of 18) behind Tosen Stardom in the $500,000 mile feature. "We'll trot her up for the vet in the morning [Tuesday]. He'll have a look at her but I don't think it's anything significant," Nichols said. "She'll probably go to the beach for a couple of days and then we'll assess whether she goes to the paddock or goes to the Myer Classic." Nichols added: "If I've got any concerns that she might have trained off or that she's got any soundness issues, I won't hesitate to send her straight to the paddock."
