It’s been a hard road for the Brett Partelle camp in trying to get boom sprinter / miler Torio’s Quest back to full health.

The horse has an electric turn of foot at his peak but it’s those feet that have been giving him all sorts of grief  over the past few months.

Torio’s Quest came into the spring carnival as one to follow and he showed his ability when second in the Theo Marks Stakes.

He was backed heavily at his next start but in incredible scenes he threw jockey Hugh Bowman and escaped onto the track, through a fence and ended up in the car park.

They persisted with him down to Melbourne but things only got worse eventually ending a hugely disappointing campaign.

“We thought we had him right but getting him to Melbourne we had issues…abscess in his foot, big one,” he said.

In fact so big was the problem that at one stage his hoof was virtually split into two.

“We had to insert 12 screws with a plate to hold that together…it was a pretty serious problem that we had,” he said.

Now though Partelle feels things are on the mend and he’s rating him as the fittest he’s been for a long time.

“It’s been a trying time with him but I can assure you he’s back to where he was,” he said.

“He’s done a mountain of work on the water walker.

“He’s feet probably look the best they’ve ever looked in his whole career.

“We’ve actually gone up a size in shoes.”

Torio’s Quest is still a month away from a return to racing but given his solid first up record expect him to be good to go from the start.

“He’s pencilled in to trial on the 20th, he virtually hasn’t had much of a saddle on his back (at this stage),” he said.

“He’s probably swimming for four minutes a  day which is a fair swim for a galloper.”

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is
    required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not
    100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Thank you

    I got this web site from my friend who shared with me on the topic of this web page and at the moment this time I am browsing this web page and reading very informative articles or reviews here.

  26. Umanizzare

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve
    hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  27. Grupo Coral presidios

    Appreciate the recommendation. Let me try it out.

  28. Itamar Serpa Fernandes

    Today, I went to the beach 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!

  29. Ellie

    really knows what they’re talking about over the internet.
    You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    story. I was surprised you’re not more popular because you
    surely have the gift.
