Brookefield trainer Jeff Galea is confident his star sprinter Scatterbox will regain his ‘spark’ at Ballarat on Wednesday night.
An auto-electrician by trade, Galea says Scatterbox has fully recovered from a bout of canine gastroenteritis which has kept him away from the racetrack for a couple of weeks.
“His blood is back to 100 per cent and he’s jumping out of his skin,” Galea said.
Galea added that Scatterbox figuratively “fell in a hole” at Ballarat at his most recent start, which was over 600 metres. Subsequent tests revealed he was suffering the initial stage of the virus.
