Spring Carnival Over for Drunken Sailor

Michael Moroney’s talented import Drunken Sailor won’t be seen again this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the eight-year-old confirmed to have broken down after their failed Underwood Stakes return last Saturday.

Drunken Sailor

Drunken Sailor has broken down and may be retired

The eight-year-old Tendulkar gelding, formerly prepared by Luca Cumani in the UK, resumed after a five month break in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) but failed to beat home any of their 13 rivals when crossing 12 and a half lengths away from the winner Ocean Park.

A notable emission from the 2012 Caulfield Cup second acceptances yesterday, it has since been confirmed that Drunken Sailor may not race again.

“He suffered bone chips in the front fetlock during the Underwood Stakes at Caulfield last Saturday,” Moroney said on Wednesday.

“They are in an awkward position and we’ll have them looked at by another specialist in the next few days before a decision is made on his racing future.”

A winner of 12 of their 49 starts for $1,148,160 in prize money Drunken Sailor faces retirement having won their last race in the Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m) at Flemington back in March.

Other career highlights included their second to Rialya in this year’s Adelaide Cup and their Group 3 Glorious Stakes (2414m) win at Goodwood when under Cumani’s preparation in July of 2011.

There is still plenty of talent heading towards the spring cups this season.
