Rebel Dane Ready For Last Hurrah

Wednesday, 8th February 2017

Meanwhile, Gary Portelli has confirmed that veteran sprinter Rebel Dane (California Dane-Texarcana, by More Than Ready) will be retired at the conclusion of his upcoming campaign. The dual Gr1 winner will resume in the $2.5 million Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on 1 April, before embarking on a winter swansong campaign in Brisbane. "He's fantastic. He came back from Hong Kong and was straight back into his work. He went three-quarter pace over 800 metres this morning [Tuesday] and he looks absolutely brilliant," Portelli told Melbourne's Radio Sport National. "We're looking forward to what will be his final preparation." He added: "First-up will be the TJ and then we'll more than likely head to Brisbane and he'll be retired after a Queensland winter campaign."
