Casimir Camotion, third in last year’s Presidential final, is absent from the free-for-all series this year at the Meadowlands while he is recovering from a broken bone.

\"He had a slab fracture of his right knee,” reported trainer Bruce Saunders. “He was operated on Thanksgiving. He has six weeks stall rest and was hand walked for 10 days. He\'ll go to the farm for two to three months for R & R, and then another two to three months of hand walking. The best-case scenario for him would be to have him ready by September, and then I\'d plan on racing him here at the Meadowlands in November. I wouldn\'t put him on any smaller tracks at that point. It\'s tough to come back from an injury like that especially as you get older.\"

The 7-year-old Camluck gelding, owned by M&M Harness Racing LLC of Nanuet, N.Y., has 28 wins, 18 seconds and 16 thirds from 94 career starts for earnings of $1.3 million His last start was Nov. 18, 2006--a fourth in an $85,000 Classic Series leg at the Meadowlands. (Meadowlands)
