Horse Description:

A winner at Wyong from just 5 starts in NSW when trained by James Cummings, Solar Sky ('Syd') has been unplaced at his only two starts in Perth due to a few niggling little issues encountered since he arrived.

A back injury suffered in a floating accident caused us to send him out for an enforced spell of 10 months. During that time, I put him out in a 50 acre paddock and sent him 'back to nature' which he obviously enjoyed! He's since returned to training and is under the care of Martin Allan at Ascot where he's had two trials and is now ready to race.l..
