Leading trainer to remain in Bendigo
SHAUN Dwyer has been interviewed for the vacant Melbourne-based foreman position of Darley's powerful racing operation, but looks set to stay in Bendigo.
Dwyer confirmed on Monday that he had met with newly appointed Darley Australia head trainer John O'Shea two weeks ago about being in charge of the Flemington-based stables.
"John and I have been good friends for 15 years and we had a chat about the position in Melbourne,'' Dwyer said from Toowoomba on Monday.
"I haven't heard anything else since, so where I stand I don't know.
"I don't know if it's John's decision or if it's Darley's decision. I would say they might be looking at appointing someone internally."
Dwyer said he would jump at the opportunity to work with O'Shea.
"It would be too good an offer to refuse if offered the job,'' Dwyer said.
"I won't be too disappointed if it doesn't happen. I'm very happy with how we're going in Bendigo. We've got some very nice horses."
