Little Tommy Fella is finally ready for his comeback, which is set to happen Thursday at Longchamp. It’s been a long, patient road, but he seems to think he’s ready, so we’re going to believe him. He hasn’t raced since a tendon problem showed up after his third-place finish at Deauville in October of 2007. Now, after stem-cell therapy and an arthroscopic knee operation, he is back in business. He will run a mile claimer at Lonchamp, in a field that is a bit tough, but this will essentially be a schooling gallop to get a race into his legs and requalify him for the handicaps. His best distance is probably a little longer. Thankfully, it rained last night and more is forecast tomorrow, so the turf should soften up a bit. We just want a safe comeback for him, to see what we should do next.
