Kiwi woman in Malaysia nursing talented Lucky Lincoln on the comeback trail
Hopes are rising that talented galloper Lucky Lincoln will be able to continue his promising career in Singapore.
The Savabeel gelding has not raced since winning his last start at Kranji in March, 2017, after which it was discovered he had injured a tendon.
It came as a blow for Lincoln Farms as Lucky Lincoln was shaping into a real money-spinner - from just 13 starts he had recorded four wins and four thirds for prize money of S$163,035.
Lucky Lincoln was sent to a spelling farm near Ipoh in central Malaysia run by Kiwi woman Sandy Lines who reports the now seven-year-old is making good progress.
Recent scans show the tendon has healed about 80 percent and Lucky Lincoln is now doing rehab work on a treadmill, walking for 10 minutes and trotting for 10 minutes on a five degree incline.
“He is handling it very well,” says Lines. “And as we go along I will continue to increase his work and eventually have him cantering.”
Lines is treating Lucky Lincoln with a laser and he also wears massage boots.
She plans to start working the horse on the track before he returns to Singapore.
Lucky Lincoln is out of the Danehill mare Astradane, who left 2003 Wanganui and Hawkes Bay Guineas winner Stardane.
