Dual group one winner Tarzino could return to the land of his birth to start his stallion career.

The Mick Price-trained stayer, who was being aimed at the Melbourne Cup, is likely to be retired after a ligament injury.

Anthony Mithen of Rosemont Stud, who owns 30 per cent of the entire, told the Geelong Advertiser they were exploring all options.

"Being a son of Tavistock, there is no hotter property in New Zealand at the moment," he said. "We have spoken to a couple of New Zealand stud farms about whether they have any interest.


"We are not looking to sell any of our ownership in the horse. We are just working out whether we partner with a New Zealand farm to give the horse the best possible chance to be a success."
