Talented entire Proisir will miss the 2014 Melbourne Festival Of Racing after the tendon injury that has kept him away from the races for over six months flared up once again.

Proisir had his 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign ended prematurely by injury and was being set for the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 VRC Sprint Classic (1200m), by new trainer Peter Moody, but was unable to recover from the career-threatening problem.

Moody was hopeful that he could get Proisir ready for an autumn campaign in Melbourne but told Racing Victoria that the son of Choisir had suffered another setback and possible comebacks plans would have to be pushed back until the Sydney leg of the 2014 Autumn Racing Carnival.

“He injured his tendon again in the spring so I probably think Melbourne will come around a bit too soon for him,” Moody said.

The rapid improvement of Proisir was one of the stories of the 2012 Spring Racing Carnival; with the talented galloper progressing from a maiden at Hawkesbury to be one of the leading contenders for the Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) less than three months later.

Proisir won her maiden by almost two lengths and stamped herself as a horse to watch with a dominant two and a half lengths victory over subsequent Flight Stakes winner Norzita in the TVN Jockeys Trust (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 1.

He made his Group debut with a most impressive win in the Spring Stakes (1600m) at Newcastle on September 19 and went into the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) as an odds-on favourite but was upset by It’s A Dundeel, in what was arguably the most exciting edition in the history of the race.

Proisir was one of three Gai Waterhouse-trained runners in the 2012 Cox Plate, along with Pierro and More Joyous, and was one of the best-backed runners in the lead-up to the race but could finish no better than eighth.

The classy entire returned to the races with a third place finish behind Pierro and Rebel Dane in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) but he was found to have suffered a serious tendon injury following his second place finish behind It’s A Dundeel in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m).

The Spring Stakes winner joined the stable of Peter Moody in April this year but the leading Melbourne trainer has been unable to get the stallion prospect to the track.

    it might not be a taboo matter but typically people do not talk about such topics.

    To the next! Cheers!!

  23. Lelio Vieira Carneiro Junior

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive
    the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is excellent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  24. Asa

    I think that everything published was very logical.
    However, consider this, what if you composed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Proisir To Miss Melbourne Festival Of Racing
    – HorseRacing.com.au is a little vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article headlines to get
    viewers to click. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers
    excited about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion,
    it would bring your posts a little livelier.

    it up what I had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to
    everything. Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers?
