Mosheen Still On Track for 2012 Cox Plate

Mosheen trainer Robert Smerdon is confident the star mare will recover in time from surgery for her tilt at the 2012 Cox Plate (2040m) in October.


Mosheen is still on track for the Cox Plate despite undergoing surgery on Sunday

The autumn star underwent an operation to fix an entrapped epiglottis on Sunday but Smerdon is not concerned about its long term effects on his stable star.

“The surgeon who did the procedure said it was a completely straightforward job and she should be as right as rain,” Smerdon said.

The throat problem became noticeable on Saturday during a track gallop when assistant Stuart Webb informed Smerdon that Mosheen was down on her usual high standards.

The team acted swiftly following further inspection that revealed the entrapped epiglottis and Smerdon has even suggested she might be able to continue her original plan of resuming in the Memsie Stakes on September 1.

“The Memsie still isn’t out of the question,” Smerdon said.

“We have plenty of time before the Cox Plate.

“We will just work back from there and revise the plan if we have to.”

Mosheen is currently fifth favourite in the early Cox Plate market ($15.00) behind All Too Hard ($12.00), More Joyous ($11.00), Pierro ($10.00) and Atlantic Jewel ($4.40).

A winner of seven of 14 starts and more than $2.6 million in prize money, Mosheen is already a four-time Group 1 winner.

The news of Mosheen’s shaky start to the spring is another blow to the carnival before it has even begun with champion sprinter Black Caviar to be rested and Melbourne Cup placegetter Lucas Cranach ruled out with injury.

Markets are now available for a number of spring features including the Cox Plate Caulfield Cup and the Golden Rose.
