Rohan Ruled Out Of 2012 Strickland Stakes

A leg injury has seen promising Western Australian colt Rohan ruled out of starting in Saturday’s Group 3 $125,000 2012 Strickland Stakes (2000m) at Belmont.

The talented Vaughn Sigley-trained three-year-old suffered a joint injury before the Belmont Guineas on June 23 which has failed to settle down following his victory in the $80,000 event.

“Since the Guineas, it’s been a concern he still has slight swelling around the knocked joint,” Sigley said.

“X-rays and scans have not revealed anything serious.

“However, we’ve decided to rest Rohan. He should soon be back in work.”

With five wins from 11 starts, the WATC Derby winner was set to start as favourite in Saturday’s Perth feature and his withdrawal has opened up the race.

One horse who is being considered for a start is Miss Tipsy Topsy who produced a stunning finish to take out the Handicap at Belmont on the weekend.

The four-year-old is being targeted at next month’s Coolgardie Cup and September’s Kalgoorlie Cup and trainer Stan Bates will weigh up how this weekend’s event would affect her handicapping for future races.

“I don’t want her to rise significantly in weights,” Bates said.

One confirmed starter is Grant Williams-trained Battle Emblem who is coming off a fifth-place effort to Luckygray in the Group 3 Hyperion Stakes.

The eight-year-old veteran finished runner-up in the event last year and showed he still has some racing left in earlier this year when winning the Listed Grandstand Cup at Ascot.

A son of Irish horse Second Empire, Battle Emblem has raced 57 times for 10 wins and 14 place finishes.

The final field for the Strickland Stakes will be  announced on Wednesday so be sure to check back at for all the latest news.
