Dominant To Stay on Down Under after 2015 The Championships

Australian expat John Moore confirmed plans to bring his Hong Kong Group 1 performer Dominant down under for a shot at the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s The Championships 2015 this season with the horse to remain in the country.

Moore spoke on Sky Sports Radio’s Racing HQ program on Friday morning about the autumn plans of both Dominant and the star stablemate Able Friend.

At this stage it looks as though impressive Hong Kong Mile winner Able Friend, who won again at Sha Tin on Sunday, will be absent from The Championships.

Connections are more likely to go to Dubai on World Cup Night for a race that will have less of an interruption to his Hong Kong racing preparation.

Despite the loss of Able Friend from the Sydney line-up, Moore will still be represented with Cacique stallion Dominant.

“Dominant is coming down, I think he’s more suitable for Australia,” he said.

“He’s still an entire.”

The veteran seven-year-old will be stabled at his brother Gary Moore’s base with his current trainer there to prepare him for an Australian raid.

“He’s on his way back for The Championships and I’ll be training him obviously,” Moore said.

“He’ll have two weeks in quarantine and then go to Gary’s stable and I’ll train him out of Gary’s stable.”

After the autumn though Dominant will stay on in Australia, a decision Moore said was in the horse’s best interests as he finds the hard tracks at home tougher as he gets older.

An Australian trainer is yet to be decided to take over.

“He’ll remain in Australia because that’s where we think the best place is for him,” Moore said.

“But an Australian trainer is still to be decided.”

A winner of five of his 29 career starts to date, Dominant was last seen running a brave fourth when two lengths off Flintshire in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m) on December 14.

That was a great form reversal on his earlier disappointing runs when finishing at the back of the field in his opening three runs for the season including running 11th of 12 runners in the Group 2 Hong Kong Jockey Club Cup (2000m) in November.

It has been a long time between drinks for the stayer who hasn’t won a race since taking out the 2013 edition of the Hong Kong Vase in a narrow finish with The Fugue.

He has been a steadfast edition to Moore’s stable however since transferring to him in late 2011 from Great Britain where he was prepared by Roger Varian.

This season in Australia Dominant will be aimed at the $1.6 million Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick Racecourse on April 11 where he will step out over further than 2400m for the first time.

The horses that ran third and fourth respectively in the Melbourne Cup last November, Who Shot Thebarman and Signoff, currently share $7 favouritism in the pre-nomination Sydney Cup odds at

Dominant is also in the top half of the early markets at $15.
