Trip-Up for Miss Tipsy Topsy’s 2011 Perth Cup Bid

Promising mare Miss Tipsy Topsy is in danger of missing out on the Perth Cup 2011 this New Year’s Eve, the Stan Bates-trained four-year-old found to be suffering from a possible lung infection, explaining her failure at Ascot last Saturday.

A daughter of Spinning World from Danewin mare Renadah, Miss Tipsy Topsy went out as one of the top chances in the Listed JRA Trophy (2200m) on the weekend, but finished a disappointing 11th behind the winner Veracious.

Surprised by the poor run, Bates ordered blood tests to be done on his Belmont Oaks – Belmont Classic double winner, the results revealing the mare had hay fever, a concerning setback as Miss Tipsy Topsy heads towards the $400,000 Group 1 Perth Cup (2400m) on December 31.

While it is only a relatively minor ailment, it has come at precisely the wrong time as she may be forced to miss a key Perth Cup lead-up in the $80,000 Listed WA St Leger (2100m) at Ascot on December 17.

“There’s no major issue but she might have a minor lower lung infection,” Bates said.

“Basically it’s hay fever.

“It’s probably been brought on by the hot weather.”

Bates will still be nominating Miss Tipsy Topsy for the 2011 Perth Cup when entries are taken this afternoon, keeping his fingers crossed that she recovers in time for Saturday week’s St. Leger.
