Tornado Tears is in doubt for Saturday nights Group 1 Association Cup.
“He has torn his pad during his Association Cup heat win,” said a disappointed Britton.
“We have started treating it by taking him down to the beach to be in the salt water.”
“It’s a superficial injury not being muscle or bone, so all we can do is wait and see how it heals.”
“I wont be mucking around with it.”
“He is a high profile greyhound so if he isn’t 100% he wont be going around.”
