Scratched From Juvenile, Jack Christopher Undergoes Surgery; Plans Call For Colt To Return In 2022

Scratched out of the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile the day before the race, Jack Christopher has undergone surgery on his left shin, according to bloodhorse.com. Dr. Larry Bramlage performed the procedure, and the 2-year-old son of Munnings is expected to return to the races in 2022.

“Due to a couple areas lighting up (on a bone scan), mainly the left shin, he had a procedure done on that shin and he’s going to be out for two months,” bloodstock agent Bradley Weisbord told bloodhorse.com. “So we will start him back (training) in early 2022 at WinStar Farm and then ship him to Palm Meadows and start his campaign in South Florida.”

Trained by Chad Brown, Jack Christopher won his debut at Saratoga on Aug. 28 and added the G1 Champagne Stakes to his resume on Oct. 2. The colt out of Half Ours mare Rushin No Blushin was a $135,000 yearling purchase at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Fall sale, and he was the morning-line favorite for the Juvenile prior to his scratch by Breeders’ Cup veterinarians.
