Danesiri Retired Due to Tendon Injury

The John Thompson-trained mare was preparing for the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill this Saturday when she suffered the injury. While it didn’t seem serious at the time, her connections realised all was not right in her cool down.

“It’s very disappointing — racing can be a great leveller,” Thompson told TVN.

“She worked fine but once she cooled down we noticed all wasn’t right.

“It’s a shame for her owners because they were really looking forward to their opportunity in a Group 1.”

Danesiri retires with 7 wins and 11 placings from her 37 starts with over $245,000 in prize earnings. The mare was set for an impressive autumn campaign after finishing runner-up in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) first-up and winning the Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) on February 28, which makes her early retirement that much more of a shame.

The mare was one of 16 mares in the Guy Walter Stakes at Warwick Farm two weeks ago. She travelled nicely in seventh place (wide with cover) following a good tempo. She moved up, very wide out, rounding the home turn and put in a strong run to hit the lead 100m out, drawing clear to score by three-quarters of a length.

Thompson will now be solely represented by First Seal in the 2015 Coolmore Classic. The three-year-old filly is expected to be the favourite in the betting at Ladbrokes.com.au after winning the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) by two and three-quarter lengths on February 28.

First Seal enjoyed a workout this morning alongside her now-retired stablemate and her trainer couldn’t fault her.

“She’s come through her work in good order. I can’t fault her,” Thompson said.

“Hugh Bowman rode her because Blake Shinn is overseas.

“She did her main piece of work last Saturday and had another good gallop this morning.

“Hugh hasn’t ridden her for a while but he said she’s definitely come on since he was last on top.”
