29/01/02 Northerly's Dubai Hopes Boosted
r7northerly2.jpg (11508 bytes)Plans to send champion Western Australian galloper Northerly to Dubai to race against the world's best remain on track after a visit to Dubai by trainer Fred Kersley.

Kersley and his wife and part owner Judith have just returned from Dubai where they gave the thumbs up to the facilities.

He said this morning that Northerly would make the trip if he was racing "well enough."

Northerly has been nominated for both the Dubai World Cup on dirt over 2000 metres and the Dubai Duty Free over 1777 metres on turf and no decision has yet been made as to which race the gelding would run if he was to travel in the search of international fame and fortune.

Kersley also indicated that his star galloper would probably miss the CF Orr Stakes, which was expected to be his racetrack return in his autumn campaign.

Meanwhile, the Serheed gelding will be a star attraction at tomorrow's Pinjarra meeting in Western Australia.

Northerly will be giving an exhibition gallop there between races.
