High-class galloper Dragon Leap (Pierro) has returned to Lance O’Sullivan and Andrew Scott’s Matamata stable as he builds towards an autumn campaign.
The lightly-raced son of Pierro suffered a set-back in Sydney in the spring which put a halt to a Gr.1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) campaign.
A dual Group Two winner, the four-year-old has had six lifetime starts and finished eighth in the Gr.2 Tramway Stakes (1400m) in Sydney, just two lengths from the winner.
“We have no real plans at this stage,” Scott said.
“We will just take him along very quietly over the next six weeks, work him through his paces and let the horse guide us.
“We have been teaching him to swim this morning and he has a bit of water-walking to do and a few things in front of him, but it is nice to have him back in the stable. He is a quality animal.”
