Brilliant Spurcraft spelled after injury

BRISBANE Aug 9 2018

Queensland speedster Spurcraft is set to miss the spring carnivals after suffering an injury.

Spurcraft is regarded as one of the fastest horses in Queensland and has won his two starts back from a spell.

His latest was at Doomben when he won a Class Six (1110m) in slick time and in all Spurcraft has had nine starts for six wins and three minor placings.

The gelding has a big following because he is trained by Darling Downs school teacher Charlotte White.

Spurcraft was expected to have his next start in Brisbane before heading south later this month.

But White has told stewards the gelding has a hairline fracture to his off side hind splint bone.

The injury is not expected to need surgery anf Spurcraft has been sent for a spell.
