Te Akau Racing reported on late Monday afternoon that their multiple Group 1 winner Gingernuts (NZ) had successful surgery earlier in the day at the University of Melbourne Veterinary Clinic in Werribee.

A fracture to the pastern bone was confirmed and four screws were inserted to repair the fracture.

Gingernuts has come through the surgery 'very well and is happy and settled, said the report.

Gingernuts suffered the injury while being ridden to the barriers for the Group 1 Emirates Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Saturday.

“Gingernuts was a late withdrawal from the race after sustaining an injury to its near foreleg whilst jogging to the start. The jockey immediately dismounted and the horse was quickly attended to by our veterinary team,” said Dr Forbes, Racing Victoria's (RV) General Manager – Veterinary Services, on Saturday.

Gingernuts is a four-year-old Iffraaj gelding and he has won six of his 12 starts including the recent Group 1 Windsor Park Stakes over 1600m at Hastings on September 23rd. He has earned stakes of $1.25m.
