Debt Collector Dubai Bound

Tuesday, 14th March 2017

Singapore Horse of the Year Debt Collector has been confirmed as a definite runner in the Gr1 Dubai Turf (1800m) at Meydan racecourse on 25 March. The planned trip to Dubai was in some doubt after the New Zealand-bred Debt Collector (Thorn Park-Prompt Payment, by In the Wings) suffered his first defeat since November 2015 when third on 3 March. He was subsequently found to have been suffering from respiratory distress but trainer Cliff Brown says the 4YO son of Thorn Park has now recovered from the minor setback. “I’m happy with his condition and that’s the race we wanted to have a crack at. We wouldn’t know if he can measure up if we stayed at home, and that’s why we rolled the dice and went for it,” Brown told the Singapore Turf Club. “He is leaving at the end of this week.”
