Dissident Set for Final Test in 2015 All Aged Stakes

Four-year-old horse Dissident will stand his debut breeding season at Newgate in New South Wales later this year, which means his current autumn racing campaign will be his last.

The Peter Moody-trained horse has had three starts already and could get his final Group One test in the $400,000 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on April 18.

Dissident was set to run in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill this Saturday but that was shelved after he pulled up with excuses when running third in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) on February 28.

Henry Field from Newgate Farm, which bought the entire ahead of his current campaign, reassures it was nothing serious and he remains in training, pressing on into the autumn.

“We just tipped him out for a week to freshen him up,” Field told Racing.com’s Shane Anderson on The Thoroughbred.

“Obviously he came out of the Futurity and he just needed a little bit of treatment, he didn’t scope well with muscus, so we’ll target him towards the Sydney Carnival and perhaps a race like the All Aged.

“He seems to be great and he seems to be bouncing around now and he’s back on track. It just put a spanner in the works as far as getting him to the Ryder, which was his initial target after Melbourne.”

Dissident is already a four-time Group One winner and has earned more than $1.7 million in total prize money.

The horse won the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) last autumn before blitzing the spring to win both the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) and running a very close second in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Charity Cup (1400m).

Dissident resumed in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) on January 24 but couldn’t handle the shorter trip or the tricky Moonee Valley track, just plugging home for third in a disappointing run.

The return to Caulfield over his ideal distance of 1400 metres three weeks later saw the four-year-old return to the winner’s circle in the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) and despite the same race conditions in the Futurity Stakes two weeks later, finishing two lengths off winner Suavito in the Futurity Stakes.
