Rostropovich All Set for Saturday’s Golden Mile 2021 at Bendigo
TAREN POINT, New South Wales — Rostropovich is ready to compete in the Golden Mile 2021 tilt happening on Saturday, March 27, at the Bendigo Racecourse in Victoria. Tom Dabernig confirmed this development. Rostropovich’s trainer affirmed that Tyranny and Frankel’s son had demonstrated that he is prepared to race again, following a gallop yesterday.
Dabernig trains Rostropovich in collaboration with Ben Hayes. He remarked that the six-year-old bay gelding is a racehorse that had had a massive public following. Additionally, the co-trainer said that all the stable’s staff had all contributed to Rostropovich returning. Dabernig shared that the runner had had two trials and is feeling well and bouncing. He also mentioned that resident veterinarian David McKellar had given Rostropovich the tick of approval.
Dabernig cited that McKellar knows Rostropovich better than anyone. He added that the veterinarian is pleased to kick off and provide Rostropovich with a run. The Euroa galloper is a well-known member of the Lindsay Park team. According to the news posted online by Australian horse racing information and news portal Racenet, Rostropovich has come a long way since the sore days of November 2019.
The racehorse, whose international prize money at the time of writing is $932,436, suffered a high-profile injury. In the 2019 Melbourne Cup, Rostropovich fractured his pelvis. At Werribee, a massive group effort took place at the Melbourne University equine clinic and this situation carried on at the Lindsay Park operation for over one year. Rostropovich then went down an extensive road of rehabilitation and recovery.
Nevertheless, the former Aidan O’Brien-trained runner has finally obtained the all-clear to come back to racing this coming Saturday. The Listed Golden Mile 2021 is a 1,600-metre Open Handicap competition. If Rostropovich bags the top prize in this tilt, his team will take home a cash prize worth $150,000, per the details posted online by horse racing news and tips website Just Horse Racing.
Connections do not have any agenda for Rostropovich. They prefer to let him build fitness. Before another hiatus, the racehorse would undergo a couple of autumn runs. The two runs form a component of a long-term strategy. Plus, in every brief preparation, Rostropovich got pushed a little further.
Dabernig relayed that their team had performed a few preparations with the runner, which is a kind of platform training. He remarked that in this activity, they would get to a point, stop, and then go a little bit further at Rostropovich’s succeeding preparation. The racehorse trainer pointed out that they would decide whether to give Rostropovich another one or two runs or merely space it out a bit through the winter.
Moreover, Dabernig said that their group would not turn the sprinter out for a spell as such. He explained that they would merely keep ticking Rostropovich along and that he would kick on to the spring if he is in the right frame of body and mind. Dabernig also mentioned that retirement or halting is possible for Rostropovich if they see him struggling or not performing.
