Rekindled Interest Returning After 9-Months Break
Trainer Jim Conlan confirmed former star 3YO gelding Rekindled Interest (Redoute's Choice-Rekindled Affair, by Rainbow Quest) will return to the track in the Gr3 Aurie’s Star (1200m) at Flemington on August 6. Rekindled Interest (who missed this year’s Autumn carnivals following arthroscopic surgery on a knee) hasn’t raced since finishing 5th as favourite in the 2010 Gr1 Victoria Derby (won by Lion Tamer); a week earlier he won the Gr2 AAMI Vase (2040m) at Mooney Valley. Conlan said Rekindled Interest will be entered in all the major Melbourne Spring races.
