    This is all good but wouldn't mind an update on our actual horse Thunder Gun please? Fab Fevola is such a genuine horse, hope he goes very well and runs a competitive race. Cheers

FAB FEVOLA ADDS INTRIGUE TO LIGHTNING article - 17 Feb 15 The late nomination by Mornington trainer Dean Binaisse of his galloper Fab Fevola could have a major effect on the outcome of Saturday’s Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning. The first of Melbourne’s three major autumn sprints is set to be a showdown between the world’s equal-highest-rated sprinter Lankan Rupee, the undefeated Deep Field and Group 1 winners Brazen Beau and Tiger Tees. The Team Hawkes-trained Deep Field has never been headed in any of his five career starts, winning all three wire-to-wire, however, if Fab Fevola is to take his place in the field it will significantly shape the speed of the premier sprint. “If he’s in it he’s going to stretch them for a long way, those quality horses I’m not sure outside of Deep Field what other horse has to go forward and lead,” Binaisse said. “It will be an exciting race if he does go around and I’m sure a lot of people will be interested if he does because it will change the whole dynamic of the race.” With the Mick Price stable riding Lankan Rupee off the pace at his jumpouts and trials, Deep Field faces the prospect of getting in a speed battle with the 79-rated Fab Fevola. “Small fields in those big races, our tactic will be the same, he can only be ridden one way because of his breathing problems and his nature,” Binaisse said. “He just likes to get out there and bowl along; you can’t change his tactics that’s just the way he is. “Fab’s only got one gear, he’s got a dog clutch on him like on a boat, you just jam it into gear and off he goes.” Watch FAB go within a whisker of the Jeep Grand Cherokee in the replay below!!

Big 24 hours for Dean Binaisse By Neale Donnelley TVN With just 12 horses in work, Mornington trainer Dean Binaisse, by his own admission, has a big 24 hours ahead of him. “I’ve got two in at Moonee Valley tonight and runners in Melbourne and Sydney tomorrow – both in $250,000 races,” Binaisse told Racing Network on Friday. He has the flying Fab Fevola contesting the $55,000 Jeep 55-Second Challenge heat over the 955 metres tonight at the Valley, along with Graphitic Gaga in the 1600-metre Benchmark 64. Binaisse will start Russian Ruby in the $250,000 Inglis Classic (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens and he the first-starter Thunder Gun tackling the $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) at Sportingbet Park. “Russian Ruby has been set for this race all along. "She ran the second-fastest last furlong in her race at Moonee Valley (when 6th to Headwater, MV December 27) and she went for a break after that,” he said. “Since then she has trialled nicely at Sandown and had a good gallop earlier this week so she’s ready to take that on in Sydney,” he explained. Binaisse will start Equiano colt Thunder Gun at Sportingbet Park and he goes into this having beaten Blue Diamond favourite Fontiton in a jump-out at the track two weeks ago. “I know Fontiton was under a triple grip, but I wanted my bloke to show us what he could do and he showed us good ability,” he said

Attention Owners - Are you tired of hearing those dreaded words - ‘Shin soreness, your 2yo needs the paddock’? If so, read on...... Are you sick of your 2 & 3yo's constantly going shin sore and the down time required for your horse to get to the races; when it’s been well documented that with the correct training program and system in place this is now a thing of the past. Owners are conditioned to accept shin soreness as standard practice and par for the course. But that’ not the case. The key to the success of our shin sore program is the when, how far, intensity and frequency of the speed component in training and conditioning of these younger horses. Once this is laid out and explained in simple terms to owners it is clear to see how this program works and provides your horse with the tools it needs to ensure longevity on the track. The benefits of our shin sore program not only develops bones of steel but also amazing heart and lung capacity, and incorporates exposing young horses to unconventional distances under aerobic capability that other trainers wouldn’t dream of for 2yo's. I have researched, developed, enhanced and tried and tested this program for over 4 years and have 100% faith that it delivers on every occasion, with the vast majority of 2yo's that have been processed through this program now residing in Asia and performing with excellent results. That’s why last year I specifically targeted 2yo types from the yearling sales with the first of our 3 purchases for 2014 all wining their trials at Sandown just after the new year and are soon to step out at the races. See the little video clip below where out 2yo's trial against the likes of Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper second Favourite Fontiton - and beat her home! If your 2 & 3yo is constantly suffering from shin soreness OR you are interested in purchasing a yearling in 2015 and you want to reap the benefits of this program then please give me a call and I will be happy to discuss in greater more detail to you. I look forward to hearing from you. Best regards, Dean Binaisse.
