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.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. 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!|
