Whobegotyou Training for 2010 Spring Carnival Assault

Esteemed trainer Mark Kavanagh has begun preparations with his talented Street Cry gelding Whobegotyou for this year’s Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Whobegotyou, a half brother to the 2009 Melbourne Cup winner Shocking also prepared by Kavanagh, came back from the paddock last week after suffering a flesh injury to his hind tendon during his run in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm on June 12.

Starting as the odds-on favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au, Whobegotyou finished a distant 11th to Black Piranha in the Stradbroke due to the injury and was then sent for a short spell to recover.

The dual Group 1 winner who took out the Caulfield Guineas as a three-year-old before claiming his second elite level win in the Yalumba Stakes last spring, is now looking fit and in fine form, ready to spend a fortnight on the water walker at an Euroa pre-training facility after returning from Queensland.

After the two weeks Whobegotyou will then be sent to Flemington, where Kavanagh’s stables are based, to start serious training for his ambitious spring campaign that will follow a similar path to 2010 Melbourne Cup hopeful Shoot Out.

Whobegotyou has won over $2.3 million in prizemoney during his seven wins from 21 career starts and will be looking to add to this in the weight-for-age spring features.

Kavanagh is also looking to nominate the galloper for the $3 million Cox Plate (2040m) on October 23 at Moonee Valley and the headline event, the $6 million Melbourne Cup (3200m) on November 2 at Flemington.

Other stable stars back in training for Kavanagh leading up to the spring including Melbourne Cup winner Shocking, Fastnet Rock colt We’re Gonna Rock, rising three-year-old Shamoline Warrior, Zabeel filly Zantelagh, five-year-old Sound Journey, unbeaten filly Cat’s Pyjamas, Danetime mare Valentine Miss, veteran runner Here De Angels and More Than Ready gelding Definitely Ready.

Don’t bet on any of these horses. Not at the TAB anyway! To get the best horse racing odds and make sure you are getting the highest payouts, sign up now at Ladbrokes.com.au and get ready for the spring!
