Trust In A Gust To Race On

Friday, 15th May 2015

Stud duties have been postponed for dual Gr1 winner Trust In A Gust (Keep the Faith-Subtle Breeze, by Storm Cat) who will race on during his 5YO season, reports racing.com. The breeding barn beckoned for the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes & Toorak Handicap winner (see below) after he injured himself when boarding a plane bound for Queensland, but Swettenham Stud principal Adam Sangster and the horse's other stake holders have decided to give the son of Keep The Faith a six-week break before aiming him at the spring. "With so many other stallions heading to stud this season we felt it would be good for the racing public to see this horse continue racing for at least another 12 months," Sangster said. "I went to see the horse on Monday with Darren Weir [trainer] and vet Andrew Cust was also more than happy with his recovery rate from his injury, however we decided that it would be in the best interests of the horse to cease with the Brisbane campaign." He added, "Darren Weir said the horse could be aimed towards a weight-for-age path in the Spring and possibly an international campaign if he measures up to the top level again." Despite the delayed start to Trust In A Gust's stud career, Swettenham's new-look roster for 2014 has been boosted by Gr1 champions Toronado and The Wow Signal along with fellow Irish-bred star Puissance de Lune.
