Menari Close to Return

Tuesday, 12th December 2017

Meanwhile, richly talented colt Menari will return to work next week and be targeted at some feature Group 1 sprints in the autumn, reports Sky Racing. A brilliant winner of the Listed Rosebud (1100m) and Gr2 Run To The Rose (1200m) in Sydney in the spring, Menari was subsequently diagnosed with a wind problem after finishing third as favourite in the Group 1 Golden Rose on 23 September. The George Altomonte bred and owned son of Snitzel underwent tie-back surgery and was spelled. "We are looking at the Galaxy [Gr1] and the Arrowfield Sprint [Gr1]," trainer Gerald Ryan said. "And if he is going well then the TJ Smith Stakes [Gr1] comes into play." Ryan added: "After that he would have a spell and we hope to get him to the Everest."
