Our talented sprinter Tavisan has been retired.
Tavisan has been rehomed on the Gold Coast with Dominique Ind, and he will live out his days with another ex OnTrack horse in Rock Academy.
Tavisan was purchased as a yearling by Grant Morgan In New Zealand in 2017, and commenced his racing career in New Zealand with Jacob McKay, before moving to Mick Price at Caulfield.
Tavisan ended his career under Kris Lees and his Gold Coast assistant trainer, Mel Eggleston
The winner of 8 races, Tavisan was placed in another 13 races across Victoria and Queensland.
Although he didn’t win at black type level, he recorded placings at Group or Listed level on six occasions at Cauflield, Flemington, Moonee Valley, Sandown and Doomben.
One of the fastest horses to carry the All Gold colours, Tavisan is enjoying retirement in the Gold Coast hinterland.
It’s likely he will appear in the Thoroughbred sections of local shows, including the upcoming Brisbane Ekka.
Tavisan may also be a candidate for an appearance at the annual Magic Millions beach race, held in Surfers Paradise each January. His new stablemate Rock Academy has been a regular performer in the now iconic beach event.
Thank you to the Tavisan ownership group who supported his retirement and rehoming with Dominique:
Adrian Albrecht, Jim Lagos, Lewis Prince, Eric Newsome, Dr David Worthley, Vin Harink, Mark Snowden, Mark Ostermeyer, Neil Evison, Mark Horn & Haydn Stjernqvist, Lisa Saxton, Bebe Mawer, Executive Racing Club (Manager Jamie Haimes) & S M C Racing (Manager Michael Szkwarek).
