18/11/2019  Tom Melbourne moves to Lindsey Smith

Cult hero Tom Melbourne (Dylan Thomas) will be transferred to Lindsey Smith’s Perth stable after OTI Racing decided to give the nine-year-old a change of environment rather than retire him. “Lindsey has proven he can get these gallopers back loving their racing and feeling settled and that’s exactly what he needs so we thought we’d give it a go,” OTI Racing’s Terry Henderson told Smith said he’s thrilled to take on Tom Melbourne and he will fly to Perth today to be trained in the heavy sand. “I’m excited about it and up for the challenge, it looks like he’s only got one more campaign in him and it would be great for him and his owners if he can win one of those big races,” Smith told “I’m confident the heavy sand training, like we did with Bart will make a big difference to him.
