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

"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.
