Proisir Out of Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival 2014

More setbacks have struck the Peter Moody-trained former Group 1 performer Proisir who now looks likely to miss the 2014 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival due to a recurring injury.

The Choisir stallion, formerly prepared in Sydney by Gai Waterhouse, has been struggling to regain their fitness after tendon issues cut short their autumn ambitions back in March.

Runner-up to star Kiwi It’s A Dundeel in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) in October last year, things have been hit and miss for the now four-year-old since.

After a four month break Proisir returned this autumn and looked on track for a stellar season.

Second-up they came close to breaking their Group 1 maiden when half a length second to the Murray Baker-trained It’s A Dundeel in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m).

That mid-March run however was would turn out to be their last in some time with Proisir not having raced since.

Their tendon injury ruled them out of the spring where they would have been set for the sprint majors including the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) – a double taken out by Rob Heathcote’s star Queenslander Buffering.

Now, despite hopes they would be ready to race again early next year stepping out for Moody for the first time, the reoccurrence of that issue is likely to keep them out of action until after the Melbourne Festival of Racing.

“He injured his tendon again in the spring so I probably think Melbourne will come around a bit too soon for him,” Moody told Racing Victoria this week.

When they do return to racing though Moody is confident they can make an impression and get back into the punters’ good books.

They lost many of their fans last spring when, after going down as the beaten favourite in the Spring Champion, they failed to place in the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m).

One of the star three-year-olds in the mix, along with top stablemate turned sire Pierro (3rd), Proisir carried just 49.5kg in Australasia’s weight-for-age championship.

They could only manage to finish eighth behind the Kiwi-trained winner Ocean Park however.

Stay tuned to for all the updates on Proisir next race, and those for the plethora of stars still set to step out in the Group 1 Victorian features next year.
