"He's an extremely talented horse," Campitelli said. "And he has a great attitude. I was confident the injury wasn't too severe and that if we did right by him, because even though he's 6, he's lightly raced, that he'd come back."
And Campitelli is excited about Target Sighted's possibilities now.
When the horse returned to the track for the first time Sept. 7, he ran a strong race.
"He stayed on the rail the whole way," Chris Campitelli said. "He's a closer and he made his big run and had bad luck, getting cut off [near the top of the stretch]. He had to stop and restart racing and he still finished a close fourth in a race run in track-record time."
