Weekend Hussler In Pre-Training For Melb Spring Return
Former Australian Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning 5YO gelding Weekend Hussler (Hussonet-Weekend Beauty, by Helissio) "is in pre-training ahead of his return to racing during the Melbourne Spring Carnival," reported The Herald-Sun. Trainer Ross McDonald confirmed: "He's doing some dressage at the moment & we'll probably send him on to the water-walker in a couple of weeks & we'll go from there." Weekend Hussler hasn't raced since his 1st-up 11th of 13 runners (beaten 3.75-lengths) behind Starspangledbanner in February's Gr1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield.
