He was retired in 2018 with a leg injuy from being run on hard ground with his previous trainer in NSW, after 12 months of R&R in the paddock, his leg was looking ok to have another go at racing. We sent him to Doombin to train and today was his first race. An eazy WIN on a soft 6 track with Lytafyre showing his usual speed and leading the whole race.
After suffering a leg injury in 2018 from being run on hard ground in NSW, Jimmy AKA Lytafyre was retired from racing.
