Tribal Wisdom shapes up for Rosehill test

Trainer Mike Moroney welcomes back sprinter Tribal Wisdom in the Gr.1 Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

Tribal Wisdom has not raced since defeating Osborne Bulls in a Benchmark 99 class race during Randwick's autumn carnival last April.

Moroney said Tribal Wisdom's long lay-off came about when he suffered a badly pulled muscle.

Tribal Wisdom is an outsider and meets some quality sprinters first-up on Saturday including Redzel, Ball Of Muscle, Nature Strip and Graff and Moroney just wants to see the gelding come through his return run unscathed.

"It's a tough test for him first-up but we're on our way to Queensland for a tilt at the Stradbroke in June," Moroney said.

"This is a nice starting point for him so we'll see how he's come back and we'll get a guide on how he's going."

Bred by Consolidated Bloodstock, Tribal Wisdom was selected by bloodstock agent Paul Moroney while at Curraghmore. -AAP
