Premier Pegasus, last year’s San Felipe Stakes winner and 8-5 morning line favorite to win the Santa Anita Derby before he was sidelined with an 11th-hour injury, has suffered a setback in his comeback attempt and will be given further recovery time over the next few months. “He had been galloping and was getting ready to breeze,” said Maria Ayala, assistant to owner/trainer/breeder Myung Kwon Cho. “We had to take the screw out that was inserted after he was hurt. He’s still at our barn at Santa Anita but needs more time.” Premier Pegasus came out of the San Felipe with a hairline fracture in the cannon bone of his left foreleg.
Not good news for now. Premier Pegasus didn't pass the xrays - will be turned out once again. Darn!!!! Maybe he will be bigger & stronger if/when he returns. I guess the screw didn't stay in the ankle right, or was a botched surgery, unsure on this. Sorry for the sad update, but its true.

  • Jinlie01 · very disappointing news. Do you have a timeline? Btw thanks for the update. · 1031 days ago
  • likin sparks · Probably the best thing would be to retire him, I'm afraid of what they will try to do with him as they have with others in the same barn. · 1031 days ago
spoke to Raxon today, just taking their time with The Peg, making sure he is 100% - let's hope he comes back!

Want to see how he comes back
His connections are taking his time with his comeback. Most likely a December return, possibly the Malibu.
According to DRF: Premier Pegasus resumes light training Premier Pegasus, the winner of the Grade 2 San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita in March, has been cleared to resume racetrack training after being given a five-month break for a hairline fracture of the cannon bone in his left foreleg. Maria Ayala, the assistant trainer to Myung Kwon Cho, said Premier Pegasus will begin jogging soon for an expected comeback this winter. “The doctor said he is okay for jogging,” Ayala said. Owned by Cho, Premier Pegasus was the morning-line favorite for the Santa Anita Derby in April when the injury was detected. A winner of 4 of 5 starts, including three stakes, Premier Pegasus has earned $293,400.
Anyone heard anything lately about PrePeg? Has he been working at all?

  • yukichan · From Raxon Cho on FB: riveting reason went through his first breeze earlier and all went perfectly. There is no published work, because the clockers could not get a time on him. Premier pegasus has been doing very well and is almost ready to fully start training. We are taking a lot time with him because we want to make sure he is 100% before we start training. Hopefully we will have him ready for the breeders cup, if not we will plan ahead into 2012. Thank You again for all the support. · 1188 days ago

According to Raxon Cho, stablemate riveting reason began training with an exercise rider this morning and will be working towards the breeders cup. Premier pegasus will begin training sometime next week.
little birdy told me this horse could possibly make it to the breeders cup :)
Raxon Cho said that highly regarded 3-year-old colts Premier Pegasus and Riveting Reason are ready to resume training after injuries derailed them from the Triple Crown trail. “They are days away from returning,” said Cho. “We hope to have them ready to race at Santa Anita this fall.” Premier Pegasus won the Hollywood Prevue and San Felipe Stakes. Riveting Reason was second in the Robert Lewis Stakes…
Does anyone know if this horse has a timeline for a comeback this year? Many thanks.

  • champion2011 · I agree zxsword and xmystix...by August...seems Breeders' Cup would not be the easiest task. And yes, it seems a lot of promising talented 3 yr olds fall by the wayside too often the last few years. · 1262 days ago
  • bigfootmauler · now days - they breed for quantity seems like instead of quality · 1261 days ago
Has anyone heard about the current status for PrePeg? Curious to know if anyone has an inside scoop on this promising colt.
The travers will be a good comeback time. Mid August will give him time to recoup and get fit again. Besides he doesnt really need to be 100% to beat this crop of 3 yr olds this year. Cant wait to see him back at the track. He was the only Triple Crown threat this year.
