A finalist in the two-year-old category of last season's national Horse of the Year awards, Steel Rose was on the verge of kicking off her three-year-old season, with a spring campaign in Melbourne on the cards before she went amiss.

"It was a stress fracture and the prognosis was that there was a 99 per cent chance of her racing again," Wheeler said yesterday. "The [cracked] bone wasn't displaced and she's 100 per cent again."
Steel Rose is in the early stages of her current preparation and so far has been restricted to conditioning work.
