Trust In A Gust suffered an injury when he played up when he was being loaded onto a plane to make the trip to Queensland for the 2015 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival and trainer Darren Weir thought that the Keep The Faith entire had recovered from the issue, but he was sent for extensive tests after he failed to fire in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on August 8.

These tests showed that Trust In A Gust had an issue with his stifle and Weir told Racing.com that bone scans revealed that the five-year-old had a bone fragment on his right patella that would require surgery.

“Something had been worrying him so it is good that we have been able to get to the bottom of it,” Weir said.

“This probably occurred when he was involved in the incident at the airport back in May when we were taking him to Brisbane but being in the early stages it didn’t show up in the original x-rays.

“I think that under the race conditions it may have just pulled the chip off.

“Regardless of whether he was standing at stud or racing, he would be required to have surgery to remove the chip.

“The good thing is that it is a straightforward operation and we should be able to get him back into training for the autumn carnival as he is a horse with so much ability.”

Trust In A Gust is already booked in to stand at Swettenham Stud for the 2016 Southern Hemisphere breeding season, but Weir is hopeful that the two-time Group 1 winner will be able to return to the races in the autumn.

Trust In A Gust was considered the poster child for the VOBIS scheme and he accumulated plenty of prizemoney in races like the Gold Carat (1200m) at Caulfield on January 4 and the VOBIS Gold Reef (1600m) at Flemington on April 5, but he stamped himself as one of the best milers in Australia during the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival.

The entire earnt an opportunity at the highest level of racing after he took out the Le Pine Funerals Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on September 20 and he went on to take out both the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on September 28 as well as the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) at the same venue on October 11.

Trust In A Gust has recorded ten wins from his 19 race starts and accumulated over $1 million in prizemoney for connections.
