Sea Change for Dandino

After suffering a leg injury prior to the running of the 2014 Caulfield Cup, the career of international based stayer Dandino was up in the air.


Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock Manager, Darren Dance, had lengthy discussions with the owners and after taking into consideration a possible stud career, it was decided to give Dandino one last crack at securing a Group 1 on Australian soil, where he will be trained by Darren.


The seven year old entire will complete a 2-3 month rehabilitation program in Ballarat, where he will be closely monitored by the Ballarat Vet Clinic to ensure he is given the best possible chance to return to racing.


Providing all goes well, he will then make his way to our Warrnambool stable where he will have access to the beach, sand dunes, water walker and treadmill as he embarks on a spring campaign.


Fingers crossed everything goes well and we see him featuring in next year’s Spring Carnival.
