Solvang, CA (August 21, 2013) – Race trainer Gai Waterhouse will utilize the skills of the world’s most famous horse whisperer in her attempts to show Australian punters “something very special” in the spring with her high profile import Carlton House.
Waterhouse confirmed on her website that Carlton House is being readied to resume in the Group III Tramway (1400m) at Randwick on September 7, 2013, where the six-year-old will carry 59kg under the set weights and penalties conditions of the race.
Waterhouse is determined to thoroughly help this son of Street Cry, following the counsel of Her Majesty to request American horse whisperer Monty Roberts to Australia to work with Carlton House as the trainer tries to improve his starting stalls manners.
“Monty Roberts, the great horse whisperer is coming to Sydney to assist with Carlton House in an attempt to get the absolute best out of him because his best is something very special,” Waterhouse said.
“Everyone at Tulloch Lodge is very much looking forward to the magician gracing our stable.”
“Monty is one of the best men one could possibly call upon when it comes to assisting a horse who has barrier problems.
“…he is very effective at what he does. I have complete faith in the magic ways of Monty Roberts.”
Roberts has worked with the Royal Family’s horses since 1989. In 2011 he was privately honored when made an honorary Member of the Royal Victorian Order by the Queen for service to the Royal Family and Her Majesty.
In 1989, the Queen Mother was reduced to tears after Roberts managed to tame her wildest horse. Roberts has been involved with some aspects of the monarchy’s horses ever since.
