Trainer David Vandyke will not be the trainer of star Queensland galloper Alligator Blood when the horse returns.
David Vandyke will no longer train for owner Allan Endresz after he told him “he doesn’t want to train for him any more” last week.
There has been rumoured tension between the ownership group and Vandyke throughout the horses Golden Eagle campaign which has resulted in the two groups parting ways.
“We had a meeting this week and he told us that, so we are making other plans for all our horses.” Endresz told the Brisbane Times.
“We have got a number of horses in his stable and they will all be moving to trainers in Queensland and when Al is ready to come back he will be going to a Sydney or Melbourne trainer.
“It is disappointing because David has done a great job with Alligator Blood and is a bloody good trainer.”
The ownerships star gelding Alligator Blood however will not race for at least four months after he was found to be suffering a kissing spine, which will be operated on this week.
“[Alligator Blood] should be right to race again in about four to six months but David has told me he doesn’t want to train for me any more,” Endresz said.
Fellow Sunshine Coast trainer Nat McCall will takeover the training of the majority of the ownership groups horses at least for the interim.
