Trust In A Gust Out Of Spring

Wednesday, 19th August 2015

Dual Gr1 winner Trust In A Gust (Keep the Faith-Subtle Breeze, by Storm Cat) will miss the spring carnival after tests revealed the 5YO will remove a bone chip from his stifle, reports Racing.com. Trainer Darren Weir ordered a thorough medical examination following the horse's disappointing first-up performance in the Gr3 Aurie's Star Handicap at Flemington where he finished a well-beaten fifth (5.5-lengths) behind promising sprinter Shiraz. "Something had been worrying him so it is good that we have been able to get to the bottom of it," said Weir. "This probably occurred when he was involved in the incident at the airport back in May when we were taking him to Brisbane but, being in the early stages, didn't show up in the original x-rays." He added: "Regardless of whether he was standing at stud or racing, he would be required to have surgery to remove the chip. The good thing is that it is a straightforward operation and we should be able to get him back into training for the autumn carnival as he is a horse with so much ability." The Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) & Toorak Handicap (1600m) winner will retire to Adam Sangster's Swettenham Stud in Victoria at the conclusion of his racing career.
