Injury Forces Jack Out Of All England Cup

Sadly Viking Jack has had to withdraw from the All England Cup!

He injured his toe and whilst it is not serious on vets advice he requires 3 weeks off. So we immediately advised the track and withdrew. Whilst we are disappointed, the injury is not at all serious and Jack will be fine.

Indeed he will continue his swimming, which has really got him fit and he loves it. I was talking to Jim and we both agree we will play it by ear, but we hope to have him back for a race before a break. If he comes back he will have another crack at the Derby, or he will retire! Jack will tell us.

Both Jim and I are of the same mind, we love him too much to take any risks, but whilst he is running well and enjoying it he will race. Any injuries and that is it, game over!

Jack is the best dog I will ever own. Now the plan is to find another, hopefully that will be a son of Jack. He will sire a litter with Viking Cheryl, and will also have a go at stud. If he isn’t popular he will come home with me!
