Group 1 Winner Hukum Training Towards Summer Return

Hukum | PA Sport

Shadwell's Group 1 hero Hukum (Ire) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), a full-brother to the once-beaten multiple Group 1 winner Baaeed (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}), will stay in training as a 6-year-old this year.

The rest of the 2022 G1 Coronation Cup victor's campaign was derailed by a hind leg injury acquired during that 4 1/4-length defeat of 2021 Coronation Cup scorer Pyledriver (GB) (Harbour Watch {Ire}). After surgery to insert three screws, the Owen Burrows trainee is now back in training after a lengthy break, and will be targeted toward summer prizes.

Shadwell's racing manager Angus Gold said of the six-time group winner, “He has been back in training a while now, so as long as he stays in one piece, he will remain in training. There isn't a plan. There is no point having a plan in January, as we don't know if he will be sound in the middle of February.

“I would think he will be out from the middle of summer onwards. We need to take one step at a time with him. There is no point making a plan in case it all goes wrong.

“Hopefully we can stay on track.”
