Having a good time of it lately with his horses Lamasary and company.

John Taps Inside Racing currently featuring his story.

Very very deep ( for want of a better description ) well worth watching and following his career.

Going terribly.

Had 2 city winners since early December, one Saturday and one midweek.

Stable star Price Cheri was disgraceful today. He's apparently off for a spell after only 2 runs back this time in.

He has a good Irish or French colt that won at Newcastle that will put his name up in lights.

Vayakhan?

Already listed placed at Longchamp, so has some talent.

He's one of the 2 provincial winners he's had in the last 3 months.

Arabian Gold won well on a track which suited Saturday week ago, but normal service resumed with Vayakhan last all the way as a short priced favourite in a 4 horse race on the Kensington track.

Normal service in recent months that is.

The most worrying aspect aside from the diabolical way his horses are going is his misplaced confidence in some of them. In the interview prior to the race, he was talking up Vayakhan as a Spring prospect. On that run, he's not even an off season Saturday  horse.

I'll reserve judgement on today's performance until I see the race but I had liked what I'd seen previously.

I saw the race.
Had every opportunity.
Had absolutely nothing when asked to quicken in the straight.

Only just watched the race.


If I had not known the result I would have sworn he was going to at least run 2nd on the bend.

He did not look to put in at all in the straight.

There is no question he has talent. Perhaps he has a bit of Gold Ship about him.

Hopefully they do not geld him.

RACE 1: TAB Early Quaddie Handicap 2400m:
Passing the 600m Grand Marshal, which was racing in restricted room to the inside of
Strike Me Lucky, brushed the running rail. When questioned regarding the disappointing
performance of Vayakhan, B Shinn stated that the horse travelled well until the 1000m and,
when the pace quickened, he felt this would advantage his mount, however, Vayakhan was
immediately under pressure approaching the turn and did not respond to his riding. Trainer
Mr D Vandyke stated that Vayakhan had done well since its win at Warwick Farm on 2 April
2014, had pleased him going into the race and he expected it to be a winning chance. Mr
Vandyke undertook to report back on how Vayakhan pulled up, but indicated the horse will
be spelled. A post-race veterinary examination of Vayakhan revealed the horse had
abraded its off hind bumper.

Post script to Monday: Trainer Mr D Vandyke advised that Vayakhan had suffered a bone chip to its nearside fetlock and would now have surgery to have it removed prior to Vayakhan being sent for a spell.

The problem with taking a horse to low grade meetings is you have to put up with low grade jockeys.

Emerald City was butchered at Bathurst just now. My guess is they took him there for an easy kill and the Jockey did not live to his part of the bargain.

Some not so good rumors doing the rounds. I hope they prove false.

Probably as good a time as any to change his surname back to what it was before.    :lol:

His yard is in pretty good form at the moment.

Thankfully those rumours had no foundation.

Maurus sat 3 deep for the entire 1900m journey at Canterbury yesterday with 60.5 kg and still won. Amazing effort! Beat import Zee Zeely (Gai) and import Loving Home. 2nd horse will win one sooner rather than later.

Easy money today once the rain came, tempted to lay for the metrop and caulfield cups and guarentee profit but i think this is a serious racehorse

Bit of a shock -


THE SUNSHINE COAST NEWSPAPER COLUMN - VANDYKE CHOOSES QUEENSLAND FOR THE NEXT PHASE OF HIS CAREER

By Graham Potter | Sunday, February 14, 2016

Graham Potter writes a weekly column for the Sunshine Coast daily. Due to demand from those having trouble accessing the paper these columns are now also published on HRO courtesy of the Sunshine Coast daily.

David Vandyke’s announcement that he will relocate his training stables from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast by the start of the new season on August 1 comes as a surprising, but very welcome boost to racing in South East Queensland.

Vandyke currently has forty-five horses in work at Warwick Farm. For the initial move, Vandyke has been allocated thirty-two boxes at Corbould Park which he is has selected as his base from which to launch the next stage of his career.

Vandyke’s decision to change states is based on both professional and personal considerations. 

With the Chris Waller and, to a lesser extent, Gai Waterhouse’s domination of Sydney only likely to become greater, Vandyke has not only recognised the limited returns you can get on general basis when competing against stables who outgun you, both in numbers and with their average class of runner, but he has done something about it by finding a new direction and trying to implement a fresh game-plan on which to build his stable’s future.

And he not about to ease himself into it lightly.

Vandyke has already set himself the goal of finishing in the top five in the Brisbane Trainer’s Premiership in his first season in Queensland.

It was also a lifestyle decision with Vandyke acknowledging the attraction of Queensland’s more laid back and warmer way of life was also a major influence in his decision making process.

Vandyke brings a wealth of experience and a solid reputation with him. 

Apart from his time and success as a trainer in his own right, Vandyke has worked with and learnt from the likes of trainers Neville Begg, Les Bridge and Graeme Rogerson.

As a stud hand Vandyke worked as a horse-breaker at Segenhoe Stud and Roseneath Stud as well as carrying out those duties at Shaddai Farm in Japan in the early 1990s.

It is that all around experience which helped Vandyke make upward progress in the tough world of racehorse training. 

While he has trained some star horses in their own right, such as multiple Group winner Arabian Gold, who many will remember winning the Doomben Roses in 2014, Vandyke is also renowned for improving tried horses as well as helping horses overcome injury setbacks.

All of that makes him a very welcome addition to the local training ranks.
