Talented filly Rondinella is facing a lengthy break from racing.
“Unfortunately, she suffered an injury to her hoof and she will be out for six months,” trainer Roger James said.
The daughter of Ocean Park was a stylish maiden winner, but then suffered a cardiac arrhythmia when tailing the field home in the Gr.3 Desert Gold Stakes (1600m).
Rondinella bounced back to finish fourth in the Gr.2 Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic (2000m) before her setback.
