Waterhouse Goes The Full Monty For Royal Runner
Meanwhile, with plans for last year's Gr1 Golden Slipper winner Overreach up in the air for 24 hours, Gai Waterhouse has taken the unusual step of sending an SOS to US-based Monty Roberts, reports dailytelegraph.com.au. Roberts, aka the Horse Whisperer, will fly to Australia to assist Waterhouse with the Queen Elizabeth-owned Carlton House whose barrier manners require finessing. Writing on her blog, Waterhouse stated: "Everyone at Tulloch Lodge is very much looking forward to the magician gracing our stable. Monty is one of the best men one could possibly call upon when it comes to assisting a horse with barrier problems." Carlton House is expected to make his return on September 7 in the Tramway Stakes.
