English trainer Charlie Fellowes announced on Social Media this morning that his journeyman Prince Of Arran will need a new rider for the upcoming Spring campaign in Melbourne. 

 

It follows the decision by Michael Walker to jump ship to rival Dashing Willoughby, a horse owned by Sir Owen Glenn, as Spring racing begins to take shape. 

 

The now seven year old Prince Of Arran has endured plenty of success in the past two Spring's down under, with the warhorse going agonisingly close in the Melbourne Cup's of 2018 & 2019.

 

The Gelding has had six total starts in Australia for two wins and four minor placings, amassing over $2 million in earnings. 

 

Prince Of Arran holds the two nominations this Spring, the Caulfield & Melbourne Cups, and was last seen finishing third at Kempton Park (United Kingdom) on September 5.
