Gavin Lerena is Back

Jockey Gavin Lerena returns to race riding riding on Thursday after a long break. Lerena reported to Gold Circle Media that he is going for final x-rays yesterday (Wednesday 5 September) and he is hoping for the go ahead. Lerena sees no reason why it should be any other way.

Lerena’s biokineticist is happy with his progress and the strength of his shoulder, commenting that the bone won’t be 100% healed but it should almost be. “I am looking forward to a good and positive outcome tomorrow,” reported Lerena.

Lerena has been riding work for four weeks already and feels strong and fit enough to start riding in races. He is looking forward to Thursday and cannot wait to get back into the saddle and be competitive in races. Lerena has decided to take only one or two rides for the first few meetings back, to allow himself to ease back into full swing. He rides Lady Jackson and Ultra Boost in today's Vaal meeting.
