PROLIFIC all-weather star Tryster will not head to Japan for the Tenno Sho at Tokyo on October 30 after suffering a leg injury.

The five-year-old, who has already raced in Dubai and America this year, was due to take his chance in the Grade 1, but is now sidelined, with the injury serious enough to require surgery, and a return to action is not guaranteed.

Trainer Charlie Appleby, who enjoyed international success on Wednesday in Australia with Geelong Cup winner Qewy, said: “It is a great pity that Tryster has suffered this injury.

“We were looking forward to him recapturing his old form on the track in Tokyo. But that is not going to happen now and his recovery will dictate whether he returns to racing.”

From January 2015 to Dubai World Cup Night in March this year, Tryster only suffered defeat once in nine starts, and is unbeaten from six attempts on the all-weather.

He finished third in the Dubai Turf at Meydan, and on his last start was eighth in the Arlington Million behind Mondialiste.
