Was catching up on TDN from earlier this week and found this

SETSUKO ON COMEBACK TRAIL
"Setsuko (Pleasantly Perfect), last seen running
second in the 2012 GI Santa Anita H., is working
towards a comeback. The 6-year-old gelding breezed
four furlongs at Santa Anita Monday in :52.20. AHe=s
about six weeks from running,@ reported trainer Richard
Mandella. AHe had a long time off with a suspensory
problem, but it looks great now. We=re doing a
Seabiscuit.@ Seabiscuit was second in the 1937 and
1938 Santa Anita H., missed 1939 due to injury and
returned to win the race in 1940. In addition to his
runner-up effort in 2012, Setsuko was also second in
the 2011 race. On the board in 12 of 18 starts to date,
he has won twice and earned $656,486."

Looks like he'll make it in time for the last HP meet.

He's a gorgeous horse. Sure hope his return to the track is a safe one.
