X-Rays confirm Barakey knee fracture
12 Mar 2013 | Barakey will be given a lengthy injury enforced spell after x-rays confirmed the Group 1 winning sprinter fractured his knee during last Saturday’s Group 1 Newmarket Handicap over 1200m at Flemington.

The Jim Taylor-trained sprinter will not be seen at the races for at least six months after x-rays confirmed he sustained a knee fracture when disappointing in the Newmarket Handicap behind Shamexpress (NZ).

The earliest Barakey could return to the races would be in the spring with the rising six-year-old to undergo surgery on the injured knee next Thursday.

Barakey ran a well beaten 11th in the Newmarket Handicap and immediate inspection of the Key Business five-year-old on returning to the mounting enclosure also revealed he lost a plate and part of his hoof.

Latest x-rays conclude what has been a forgettable trip east for Barakey and connections after he was scratched at the barriers when highly fancied in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) on February 23.
