Trinder Could Be Forced to Watch From Afar
Tasmanian trainer Adam Trinder may have no choice but to watch his champion Mystic Journey from afar as she stakes her claim for spring riches in Victoria. Having already aborted her Adelaide campaign under instruction from owner Wayner Roser, AAP reports Trinder is resigned to having to send the top-flight Tasmanian mare to the stables of Tony and Calvin McEvoy unless he is prepared to undergo a COVID-19 self isolation period of 14-days upon his return to Tasmania. The McEvoy stable has a strong understanding of how Trinder wants Mystic Journey trained. “I trust she would lose nothing if I did have to send her and let them care for her, but from a selfish perspective it is not an ideal scenario as I'm very hands on and I like to do things myself,” said Trinder, "but in trying times, sometimes you have to diversify." If Prime Minister Scott Morrison gets his way, Australia’s internal border restrictions won’t be in place for much longer, something that must give Trinder hope.
