Endless Drama looks Australia bound

Ger Lyons: 'I think he's going to head to Australia – that's the plan, as I'm told'

Ger Lyons has been left with a feeling of what might have been after he revealed Endless Drama is likely to continue his career in Australia.

Runner-up to Gleneagles in the Irish 2,000 Guineas last season, the four-year-old colt showed he retained his ability when third in the Lockinge at Newbury on his first run for a year in May.

He was, however, only fifth of seven runners in the Royal Whip at the Curragh last weekend.

"He seems OK but I was very disappointed with that (Royal Whip)," Meath man Lyons told At The Races.

"It probably drew a line through his Group One future on this side of the world.

"I think the jury is out on what they are going to do with him next, but I think his career in Ireland is finished, as far as we're aware.

"I think he's going to head to Australia – that's the plan, as I'm told.

"I'll be disappointed because he's as good a horse as I've trained.

"I'm just disappointed we got chinned in the big ones. We got chinned in the Guineas and he ran well in the Lockinge.

"He's a nice horse to have and I'm just sorry I didn't hit the big target with him."
