Holy Camp Boy returned to the stables of harness racing trainer Mitchell Reese on Monday only a week after returning from a failed trip to Victoria for the Bendigo Cup. Reese was concerned for his stable star when he failed to recover from his Victorian effort and thought he might be battling something quite serious.

“He pulled up terribly after the Bendigo Cup and I knew something was wrong” Reese said.

“He was scouring badly and I had a few people tell me that he was suffering from colic but I think it was more likely a bout of travel sickness, he seems really well now which is a huge relief and now fingers crossed we can press on with his campaign.”

While Reese is hoping to continue on with Holy Camp Boy he confirmed that no set plans had been made for the son of Stature.

“Yeah look I have made no concrete plans for him, at this stage I want to take him to Young for the Carnival Of Cups meeting in the middle of February but after that I will just be concentrating on things a bit closer to home.”

“He should be ready to trial on Tuesday week at Menangle and that will give me a much better guide on where he is headed but at this stage I will be targeting the Carnival Of Cups with him.”

Before heading to the Bendigo Cup, Holy Camp Boy had won five races in succession including the Shirley Turnbull Memorial at Bathurst on Boxing Day and the Free-For-All event at Harold Park’s farewell meeting.

“He was having a really good run up until he got sick so hopefully the week off has freshened him up a bit and helped him get over his problem, I think he will come back really well.”

“The decision was made not to go to the Inter Dominion and I think it will be proved to be the correct one because we can concentrate on a few of the feature races closer to home while the top ones are out of the country.”
