Dual Group One Runner-up Proisir Makes his Comeback

Five-year-old entire Proisir was a promising runner in his seven months on the racing scene during August 2012-March 2013.

Proisir made his return to racing in over 18 months month in a barrier trial on Monday.

Under the care of Gai Waterhouse, the horse dominantly won the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1600m) by six lengths, finished a close second in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), and even enjoyed a run in the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) during his first preparation.

He returned during the autumn of 2013 to finish in the first three in both the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Royal Randwick Guineas (1600m). However this was the last time the son of Choisir was seen on the track for over 18 months after suffering two tendon injuries.

In that time the entire transferred to the care of Peter Moody before joining Peter and Paul Snowden’s stables. After more than 12 months of rehab he made his return in a barrier trial at Randwick on Monday.

Proisir finished fourth of five over 734 metres in the trial under jockey Hugh Bowman. Paul Snowden was happy with the result, stating that all signs were positive following the work. He admitted however that the five-year-old’s fitness remains a day-by-day journey.

“His tendon is fine this afternoon so that’s very pleasing for everyone that he’s coped with the pressure this morning and come through it fine,” Snowden told Racing Victoria.

“He’s done two tendons and the second one was pretty severe so the percentages of him getting back to the races are very slim. He trialled outstanding this morning, but he was never out there to do anything serious.

“He’ll have another trial in about two weeks and we’ll see where we go from there.

“The plan is just to give him one run, then give him a three or four week break and then get him back in the stable and go again.

“He has got massive potential. He’s never going to lose that ability that he’s always had but it’s just a matter of the horse standing up and being sound, that’s the hardest part.

“It’s been a massive effort by everyone involved with the horse to get this far. The owners were absolutely beside themselves just to see him back and jumping out of the barriers again because they thought his career was finished 12 months ago.”

There’s no denying that Proisir was a rising talent during his time on the track. It’ll be great for Australian racing if he can safely make his return.
