There is something very very wrong with that Lindsay Park policy.

The medical records of all horses should be part of their passport.

All of their horses for sale have this same vet clause. I’ve always found it extremely dodgy.

Warrnambool-based trainer Aaron Purcell says he is going to go right back to basics after buying one-time Melbourne Cup favourite Constantinople.

The former import, who ran fourth in the 2019 Caulfield Cup for Lindsay Park, was knocked down to Purcell for $70,000 at this month's Inglis Digital sale.

The five-year-old has failed to hit those 2019 heights, and has battled injuries, with his most recent outing a 38.4-length defeat in the Listed Andrew Ramsden last month.

Purcell said he is hopeful the change of scenery will help spark Constantinople.

"He is a high-class horse that has obviously lost his way for a few different reasons, I have been told," Purcell said.

"We will just work on them, try and get him going again and work out where we are. There's no plans.

"Obviously he had big expectations early on and they have disappeared now. So we can poke along and do things without much pressure and run him when he is ready.

"We will get him going and then work a plan out and readjust that plan as we go.

"It's good to have good horses in the stable and hopefully we can get him back to form and win a decent race."

The basics  ?

Does that mean the fortnightly ritual 1000m 1200m 1400m 1600m 2000m 2400m 3200m ?

Aaron Purcell is not a cookie cutter trainer.  Thinks outside the square & can get the best out of stamina horses.  His CV does include most of the major marathon jumps races too, which is testament to this.  He’s had quite a few imports over the years, generally C-graders but still gets them winning at their grade.  So will be fascinating to see if he can resurrect Constantinople.

He often starts their racing prep with starts over a mile or so too Smile
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

AP goes alright and a good horseman to boot , just a curiosity question , was this horse a N/H 3/yo when he ran in the Melbourne cup ? if so that would make about 8-10 n/h 3/yo since those 3 lollipops went like Oakleigh Plate horses about 10 years ago and finished a furlong or two behind the winner , then shot thru like a Bondi tram with the trainer the same night and not a word said , they take this race too casual for the young ones no matter what they've done back home , btw any news on Tiger Moth.?

Thanks , I watched his first up run with the jockey easing him up in the last 200 though he may have had a problem.
