Tambo's Mate to miss next month's Stradbroke


Queensland sprinter Tambo's Mate has been ruled out of next month's Group One Stradbroke Handicap after finishing seventh in Saturday's Group Two Victory Stakes at Eagle Farm..

Trainer Stuart Kendrick said jockey Matt McGillivray felt there was something wrong when he returned to scale after the race and subsequent tests revealed the horse had suffered an injury.

"We let him cool down and had him scanned. He has wrenched a joint." Kendrick told AAP.

Tambo's Mate did hold a ballot exempt entry into the Stradbroke at Eagle Farm on June 6 after winning the Group Three BRC Sprint at Doomben three weeks ago.
The trainer speculated the injury may have happened in the latter stages of the race and confirmed the star galloper will spend an extended period on the sidelines.

"It is very swollen and he will need three months in the paddock.

"I thought he was going to be in the finish at the 250 metres but he stopped. He must have done it around then.

"Hopefully we can get him back for the summer."
