In-form Cambridge four-year-old Te Toro Pearl has undergone a minor operation.
“She has had a little chip on her fetlock and has had it removed,” trainer Jon Miller said.
“She was going out for a spell when I noticed it so had it taken out. It wasn’t annoying her at all.
“She’ll be boxed until the 20th (August) then have a wee break and I’ll bring her back in and get her ready for next autumn.”
Te Toro Pearl, a daughter of Bullbars, has continued to impress with her progress through the grades, being unbeaten in her last four starts with the latest win over 1400m at New Plymouth last month.
