Trainer Dale Romans has won major races around the globe, from the Group 1 Dubai World Cup with Roses In May, the G1 Preakness Stakes with Shackleford, to numerous Breeders' Cup races.
After many years spent training horses, Romans has become disenchanted with the state of racing in the U.S., and appears to be eager to make a major change as he nears his 50th birthday.
In a recent interview with the South China Morning Post, Romans indicated that he would love to join the training ranks in Hong Kong, should a license become available. The Eclipse Award-winning conditioner also voiced his opinion on the current state of racing in North America.
“I'm ready for an adventure and I'm so sick of what's happened to the sport in the US. I'm done with it,” Romans said.
“I'm a horseman and I think races should be won by the better horseman, not something else. I was very impressed with what I saw in Hong Kong when I was there and I know that, because the vet side of racing is so tightly controlled there, it's the superior horseman who will succeed. They've never had an American trainer but if they want me, I'd love to train there.”
