Sir Henry Cecil to make Juddmonte trip
11:41am Tuesday 21st August 2012 in Sport
SIR HENRY CECIL is hoping to be at York tomorrow to saddle Frankel to victory in the £725,000 Juddmonte International.
The Newmarket trainer has been receiving medical treatment and was unable to watch his star colt’s victory in the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood last time out.
Always a popular man on Knavesmire, Cecil said: “Although I have had some medical treatment recently and have not been racing because my immune system is low, I have been able to work from home.
“I am very hopeful that I will be able to make it to York on Wednesday to saddle my horses. I just cannot miss the day and I want to be there for Frankel. He seems in good order at the moment leading into the Juddmonte. I do not think the distance is going to be a problem although we are going into unknown territory.”
