CORNE Spies was in Mauritius this week checking on his international travellers Van Halen (pointed star) and Nourbese (full blaze). Here they after following a washdown – both enjoyed a canter on the Mauritian quarantine track.
They will leave Mauritius for the UK around 30 January and their final destination was to be Saudi Arabia (big meeting on 21 February), but with travel delays, Spies will be keeping his race options open.
“Both are enjoying themselves on the island, in good shape,” Corne said.
