Champion mare Delicacy will launch a potential comeback to racing when she returns to work at Grant and Alana Williams’ stable today.
Owner Bob Peters said Delicacy has completed a 12 month rehabilitation program since she severely tore both front tendons.
Peters remains cautious about Delicacy’s comeback but said she will race again if she responds well to her return to training.
“I’m being very cautious because I’ve never had one come back from two tendons before,” Peters said.
“She’s galloping freely at the farm and putting on weight.
“She’s at the point where she will have some more serious work.
“If she comes though it there is a possibility she will race again. It’s not definite.”
The WA Horse of the Year was retired after 12 wins from 19 starts and more than $2.15 million in prize money.
