The 2008 O’Brien Award winner for Two-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year in Canada, Nebupanezzar, has been derailed from a 2009 comeback, but plans are in the works to attempt another one next season.

Trainer Bob McIntosh, who also picked up an O’Brien Award as Canada’s Trainer of the Year last season, told Trot Insider he wasn’t happy with the way things looked with Nebupanezzar following a pair of qualifiers at Mohawk Racetrack.

"I shut him down for the season,” said McIntosh. “After the last qualifier I didn't like the look of his leg. I sent him to Rood & Riddle to Dr. Larry Bramlage for surgery.”

McIntosh is optimistic the career winner of $1,088,050 will make it back for another campaign.

“He will be back as a four-year-old,” he added. “The prognosis is favourable. As I have said from the beginning, my intention has always to do the right thing for the horse."

Peter Pan Stables Inc. of Pepper Pike, OH (the nom-de-racecourse of Bob Glazer) bred and owns the three-year-old son of No Pan Intended-Western Wonder.
