Ernie Bung Arrow Sidelined For Three Months With Wrist Injury

South ’s star chaser “” will be off the racing scene for at least three months after pulling up lame after a trial at on Saturday and requiring an operation.

Trainer advised that Ernie Bung Arrow had chipped a piece of bone in his front wrist and would be operated on this at Adelaide Plains Vet Clinic. He advised that he would be off the race track for at least three months while he recovers and was hopeful that his champion can return to the form that has seen him dominate the local features over the last six months.

After only turning two in November last year, “Ernie” is still very young and hopefully has time on his side for a return to the race track.

Ernie Bung Arrow was trialling at Ballarat in preparation for a potential tilt at the Ballarat Derby if he was not invited to the rich at on February 15, with those invitations released today. Ken Gill made the call to The Meadows and withdrew “Ernie” from the nominations before they were finalised today.
