Popular New South Wales based owner Rob Nalder is looking forward to seeing his pride and joy Caribbean Blaster resuming from a lengthy spell in the near future. Trained by
"Whenever I have spoken with Andy this time he has been very confident that he will return to his best, in hindsight we should have raced in the Inter Dominion and gone to the paddock, what they did with Im Themightyquinn was spot on," Nalder said.
"The plan at this stage is to target the Queensland Pacing Championship in October and then head back to New Zealand for the Cup and Free-For-All in November. It is all very exciting after he did us so proud in 2012."
Nalder thoroughly enjoyed his time in New Zealand last year and is hoping to enjoy more success this time around.
"He finished ninth in the New Zealand Cup but he didn't get away all that well and his run after that was very good and he finished fourth in the Free-For-All behind Gold Ace, just to be a part of the whole experience was something very special and I am very keen to go back and do it all again."
"His slow start in the New Zealand Cup isn't how he normally handles the standing starts, he's not a brilliant beginner but he is normally very safe,"
Stablemate Renaissance Man is also on the comeback trail and Nalder is hoping he can return to his best.
"He needs to come back and prove himself but at his best Renaissance Man is a very talented horse, he always races really well for the first couple of starts but then seems to taper off."
"Both Caribbean Blaster and Renaissance Man are coming up together, but they are quite different because Renaissance Man is very switched on in track work while Caribbean Blaster is the complete opposite."
