David Menuisier is getting Danceteria ready for a campaign in Australia at the end of the year following his Group One victory in Germany last month.
The Pulborough handler gave the four-year-old gelding a break after he took the Grosser Dallmayr-Preis – Bayerisches Zuchtrennan at Munich and is now counting the days until Danceteria is shipped to the southern hemisphere.
Menuisier has mapped out an ambitious three-race programme that includes the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in October.
“After Munich we gave him a bit of a break and he’s going to go straight to Australia and goes into quarantine in mid-September,” he said.
“He’ll be leaving on the 26th, so he won’t run again in Europe this year.
“All being well, the plan is to run him in the Caulfield Stakes over one mile two, then the Cox Plate will be his main target and then probably the Mackinnon.”
