Aim Smart is recovering from an operation with hopes held he will return to fulfil his potential.

Promising Cambridge two-year-old Aim Smart has undergone an operation since finishing unplaced in the Listed Reid & Harrison (1980) Ltd Slipper at Matamata.

The China Horse Club-owned juvenile was an impressive debut winner and was being considered for an Australian campaign before his Matamata run.

“Unfortunately he pulled up lame behind after his Matamata run and we found a little issue that required an operation, which he had on Wednesday,” said Pike.

“It is definitely not career threatening. He’ll go for a nice long break now and will come back as a three-year-old.

“I’m sure on the ability he showed us he’s going to be very competitive in some of the better three-year-old races in the spring.”
