Damek to leave state

17 / 12 / 2010 Article by: Editor

THE connections of star Tasmanian Damek confirmed soon after he finished last in the Group 1 Hobart Thousand that the dog and his litter brother Decembrist, that also contested the Thousand, would be flown to Melbourne this week.

One of the dog’s part-owners June Phillips said Damek and Decembrist would be sent to the kennels of Bob Douglas and both would campaign on the mainland indefinitely.

Damek had his unbeaten record from 13 starts broken in the Thousand final.

Decembrist campaigned successfully in Victoria for Douglas prior to returning to Tasmania for the Hobart Thousand series.
