Scans all clear for Incentivise
Incentivise (Shamus Award), a hero of the spring with wins in the Caulfield Cup (Gr 1, 2400m), Turnbull Stakes (Gr 1, 2000m) and Makybe Diva Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) before a brave runner-up effort in the Melbourne Cup (Gr 1, 3200m), has had scans on a torn suspensory ligament come back all clear, having returned to work at Peter Moody’s stable recently.
“We’ve been scanning him every time he steps his work up and so far, it’s all come back 100 per cent,” partowner Ozzie Kheir told Racing.com. “We scan him prior to and post his work and there are no issues. So far, with two scans done, everything has been good. [Scanning legs] is not absolutely necessary, but it’s for peace of mind for all the owners who all put the horse first. If at any stage a scan comes back that is slightly worse than before, we’ll just pull up stumps and look to the autumn.”
