Sea Siren, Australia’s representative in yesterday’s Hong Kong International Sprint, was today suffering from plenty of scratches and bruises after her failure.
Trainer John O’Shea told racingnetwork this afternoon Sea Siren was “pretty sick and sorry” for herself after not much went right for her in yesterday’s race.
“She got smashed at the start by the Japanese horse and Jimmy (rider, Jim Cassidy) had to rev her up, then she got very fierce on him using a lot of petrol,” O’Shea said.
“She’s got a bunch of scratches and bruises and she’s a bit tired today, but essentially there’s nothing seriously wrong with her so we can move on now.
"I just want to get her home and get about getting her right for the T. J. Smith on her home track,” he added.
