Terry Henderson is counting down the days until Group 1 winner Gailo Chop returns to the racetrack, with the gifted import set to join Darren Weir's Warrnambool stable in the coming weeks.

The six-year-old hasn't been sighted since an unplaced run behind Postponed in last year's Sheema Classic (2400m) in Dubai but the OTI Racing chief reported the talented gelding had all but overcome the tendon injury that had sidelined him for more than 12 months.

"He's about four weeks away from going down to Weiry's stable at Warrnambool," Henderson said. "I think the beach will suit the horse.

"He's been through a tendon rehabilitation process with Lee Evison at Longwarry and all the signs are good.

"He's in the final stages of his recovery but, fingers crossed, he'll be back racing in the spring."

Gailo Chop arrived in Melbourne for the 2015 Spring Racing Carnival under the care of French horseman Antoine De Watrigant, for whom he'd won six Stakes races in France prior to his triumph in the G1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington.

That 2000m Group 1 - now the Emirates Stakes (2000m) - will again be the likely target for the galloper this year with Henderson keen to explore options that would likely avoid a clash with champion mare Winx.

"It's always a different scene when they come from Europe and you don't really know they are going to adapt to our training styles but I think being down at the beach will suit the horse," he said.

"I would like to think that he'd be up to some weight-for-age 2000m races in the spring and obviously there's the Mackinnon Stakes but it will probably depend on what Winx does.

"In terms of where he kicks off, we'll just have to wait and see what he's like early in the spring."

OTI Racing have made a business out of purchasing and developing and importing European-bred horses for long-term success in Australia and their 2017 crop of horses presents as one of the most exciting yet.

Henderson nominated Manangatang and Araaja as lightly-raced horses he would love to see progress to the three-year-old classics in the UK and France, while the Andre Fabre-trained Le Juge is another he believes can establish himself as a genuine Stakes contender this season.

"We've got a great team in Europe this year," he said.

"There are about three or four of them that do look as though they could be Group quality so it's quite an exciting time for our owners."

Proud owner of many horses, both thoroughbreds and standardbreds. Love my racing

Thanks "Greg".  That's a huge price for a million dollar earner.

Listening to all his interviews, he clearly hasn't a clue & it's not a question of pulling the wool over punters' eyes.
BHB & Voodoo Lad both needed another run in his opinion but the 'boys' at W/bool had huge raps on VL. His BB for the day was Handsome Thief EW so I guess he was right there but I think this is why so many of his horses drift.
Experience is something you gain a few minutes after you could have used it!

He's pretty up front but there wouldn't be a trainer around who doesn't hold back a little for the connections Gay. Maybe Mick Price the exception. A touch of the DHayes/Dab though. DHayes is a good judge in his previews, TDab not so much. Waller gives sfa imo.

Hayes is like Gai imo, they'll all win LOL but unlike you, I've had more luck following Tom.

Can not wait to see him back at Flemington over 2000m. I hope so anyway, seems everyone is aiming at the Caulfield Cup, but love him in the Emirates/Mackinnon.
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise
