The 4-year-old son of Glitterman breezed four furlongs in :47.80 in his first major training move since the he underwent surgery to remove a bone chip from his ankle following a disappointing fifth-place finish behind Proud Citizen in last year's Coolmore Lexington (gr. II) at Keeneland.This the second attempt to return Ethan Man, who is owned by West Point Thoroughbreds, to serious training and Byrne said the effort has gone well so far."We took the chip out and then he came up with a splint bone and we took that out because it was aggravating the suspensory (ligament)," said Byrne. "Right now, as far as the ankle and the bone goes, everything is good and the suspensory is nice and tight."Byrne said Ethan Man has also been gelded since his last trip the races.
He has a career record of 3-0-1 in five races and has earned $150,894.
