IMPORT NEARS RETURN FOR LINDSAY PARK

It seems as though missing the Spring Carnival in 2020 has done French import Port Guillaume a world of good as he nears a competitive return to racing down under after being ruled out the previous year with injury

Port Guilluame set for Spring Campaign

Port Guillaume arrived in Australia with a promising reputation after putting paid to a Group 2 field at Deauville in France with relative ease.


The win put Australian bookies on notice as Port Guillaume was made prominent in betting for both the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup before injury marred the planned campaign.

A bone scan before the Caulfield Cup exposed bone bruising which subsequently led to the stewards withdrawing the import before the race. With the Melbourne Cup approaching, The Lindsay Park team of Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig decided to the send Port Guillaume to the spelling paddock.

“They did the bone scan on him and found he had bone bruising,” Hayes, who now trains Port Guillaume in partnership with his brother JD, said.

“He’s a young horse so it wasn’t all bad because he was able to go the paddock and acclimatise.”

Hayes was really happy with the 5 year old import especially during a frosty winter he has returned in excellent style. 

“He’s building up really nicely. He’s clearly got really good ability and he’s an exciting horse for the stable,” he said.

“We’ve done the right thing by him and given him more time.

“He’s come back well and his action is 100 percent so hopefully he’s in for a good prep.”

Hayes confirmed that Port Guillaume will be looking for a 1600m race as a first assignment with tilt’s at the major cups likely for the Lindsay Park runner.
