After a disappointing winless spring campaign, it has been revealed that Alligator Blood will undergo surgery to fix a spine problem, which is expected to require four to six months on the sidelines.
A new trainer has yet to be confirmed, with connections reportedly looking at options in both Melbourne and Sydney.
