Wallace Back in NZ Having Break from US

Tuesday, 9th June 2020

After going through New Zealand's strict Covid-19 quarantine protocol following his return from the USA, Michael Wallace is enjoying the chance to relax in more familiar surroundings back in Cambridge. With the Coronavirus pandemic forcing the rescheduling of major American Yearling sales such as Keeneland and Fasig Tipton to later in the year, the China Horse Club's Chief Operating Officer took the opportunity to return to his native New Zealand for a short break. According to NZ Racing Desk, Wallace is pleased to be able to return to some sort of normality following his isolation period as he updates himself with the progress and development of members of the China Horse Club's thoroughbred team being set for spring racing in New Zealand. "We're waiting for racing to get going here in New Zealand but we do think we have quite an exciting team of young horses that will be ready to go for the spring." Wallace indicated the Club's New Zealand racing team will be around eight strong with a mix of 2YOs and 3YOs that includes impressive debut stakes-winner Unition. "We're pretty excited about him as he matures into his 3YO season so we will poke away with him on a path to the 2000 Guineas (Gr1, 1600m) at Riccarton. One star who will be missing from the China Horse Club line-up this season will be multiple stakes-winning mare Queen Of Diamonds who has been retired to the broodmare paddock.
