Anton Marcus made his long awaited comeback to the racetrack in a barrier trial at Greyville yesterday and hoped to be back race riding within ten days.
Marcus underwent an operation on his wrist and elbow respectively.
Unfortunately, infection set in to two of the incisions after six weeks.’
Therefore, he had to go for a second operation to have it cleaned out.
He said, “I am hoping to be back race riding within ten days.”
He quipped, “But it all depends on how I pull up from all of these barrier trials.”
He said there had been “an improvement” in the mechanics of both his wrist and elbow and admitted fitness was the main obstacle he was facing.
He concluded, “It is nice to be back.”
