Chipperfield May Consider Future Australian Move
"To have something to look forward to in the next month or so has certainly given us some confidence, but where it goes from there [New Zealand racing] is anybody's guess," Chipperfield told NZ Racing Desk. "I think a lot more people are thinking of Australia more than they would have six months ago." While the 40-year-old envisages Catalyst doing much of his future racing across the Tasman, Chipperfield views his own future in New Zealand for the time being. "I've got a young family, and I'm building up a business here in New Zealand," he said. If I could get a few horses and get clients that are keen to take them over to Australia then it could well be in the future for us." Chipperfield observed, "But for now, we're happy to bounce back and forth [between New Zealand and Australia] with the good ones, which I think is going to happen a lot more from New Zealand trainers in the next year or so."
