Tom Melbourne moves to Lindsey Smith
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 Racing.com.
“I’m confident the heavy sand training, like we did with Bart will make a big difference to him.”
