Dance With Her will skip the entire 2013 Spring Racing Carnival with trainer David Brideoake choosing to save the veteran mare for next year’s autumn.

The rising seven-year-old has not been seen at the races since finishing third behind Julienas and Permit in the Listed Manion Cup (2400m) at Rosehill in March and will spend a substantial period in the spelling paddock before returning for the 2014 Autumn Racing Carnival.

Dance With Her was far from disgraced during the 2012 Spring Racing Carnival, finishing fifth behind Southern Speed in the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) and second in the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m), but Brideoake believes that the daughter of Al Maher performs at her best during the autumn.

The mare has recorded impressive wins in the Listed Warrnambool Cup (2350m), Listed Centauera Stakes (2005m) and Yarra Valley Cup (1950m) during her past two autumn campaigns and Brideoake said that she will target similar races next year.

“She’s in the paddock and we’re going to by-pass the spring with her,” Brideoake told TVN.

“We’ll target the autumn with her that seems to be the best time of year for her.

“Her autumn program will be aimed where we can finish in a race like the Brisbane Cup.”

Brideoake admits that Dance With Her, who has recorded twelve wins from forty-seven starts and accumulated $766,153 since making her racing debut in 2009, is reaching the end of her career but believes she is still good enough to win a couple more big races before she is retired.

“I would think this would probably be her last season of racing before she goes to stud but we’re expecting good things from her,” the Mornington-based trainer said.

Dance With Her’s stablemate Ominous Quality is set to run in the Super National Jockeys Celebration Handicap (1600m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to
    tell someone!

    First of all I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your
    head prior to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
