Ocean Park to kick of Dubai Campaign at Home

Quarantine complications have forced Ocean Park trainer Gary Hennessy to change autumn plans for the Cox Plate winner and he will now kick off his campaign in his home country of New Zealand.

Ocean Park will have a lead-up in New Zealand before chasing Group 1 glory in Dubai in March

Hennessy had originally planned to give the multiple Group 1 winner a lead-up in Dubai ahead of the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free on Dubai World Cup night in late March but he will now contest the Group 1 Haunui Farm Classic at Otaki in February.

The New Zealand trainer told The Informant that the Thorn Park entire is back in work and and is on track to trial prior to the Otaki hitout before the eventual goal in Dubai.

“He can have a trial or a couple of exhibition gallops before Otaki, then fly to Dubai via Sydney with enough time to get over the trip and line up in the Duty Free,” Hennessy said.

“He’s done well during his time out but was happy to get back doing something.”

Ocean Park stands as one of the most impressive gallopers in the southern hempisphere, with seven wins from 12 starts and having only failed to miss a top three finish on one occasion.

The four-year-old has won more than $2.5 million in prizemoney and produced a near flawless campaign during the spring.

After arriving in Australian on the back of a win in the Group 1 Makfi Challenge Stakes, Ocean Park proceeded to claim the Group 1 Underwood Stakes, the Caulfield Stakes and the Cox Plate before finishing third to Alcopop in the Mackinnon Stakes.
