She’s A Fox Out of Spring Carnival 2012

Anthony Cummings’ untapped filly She’s A Fox has suffered a season ending injury and will be absent for the remainder of the 2012 Sydney and Melbourne Spring Racing Carnivals.

One of the top fancies for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m), the three-year-olds’ classic kicking off Group 1 racing for the new season at Rosehill on September 15, the daughter of Fastnet Rock had a track gallop on Tuesday but pulled up short in her action after the run.

It was later found the promising youngster had injured a ligament at the back of her knee.

Cummings and connections then made the tough decision to take her out for the rest of the season, She’s A Fox considered “too good a filly to risk” pushing on with a Golden Rose campaign.

“She didn’t pull up well after a recent gallop and we had her scanned, we would have done a few things to press on this campaign but we decided to take the safe option,” Cummings said.

“We could have pushed on and treated it but she’s too good a filly to risk.

“We took the conservative view in dealing with it.

“She will have some treatment and she’ll be out for three months and come back in the autumn.

“The point of us ending her preparation now is so that she will be back in the autumn.”

A winner of three of her four career starts to date She’s A Fox was undefeated this time in having won a 1100m sprint at Warwick Farm by an easy four lengths first-up in July before her big three and a half length victory in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) back at the track on August 11.

She’s A Fox was set to vie for her third win on the trot this Saturday in the $125,000 Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m).

With She’s A Fox ruled out of the Silver Shadow Stakes 2012, another Fastnet Rock filly in the lightly-raced John Thompson-trained Nechita ($2.05) will jump the short-priced favourite.

While Cummings is now without a representative in the Silver Shadow, he is still a chance at black type success at Saturday’s Warwick Farm meeting with Calamba resuming in the $125,000 Group 3 Up & Coming Stakes (1300m).

Rated a $16 chance in markets firmly led by Sumarand ($2.05), Bernardini filly Calamba was last seen winning a 1300m handicap at Royal Randwick back in May and is out to stake her early claims on the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) running at Caulfield on October 17 during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

“The fillies’ race has got a lot of depth and I didn’t want to take on Nechita,” Cummings explained.

“Calamba has beaten (Up And Coming entrant) Toydini before and she’s raced against the boys successfully.

“The 1300 metres is also more comfortable for her.”

Cummings is also still on track for a good 2012 Golden Rose with Your Song and Ninth Legion both heading towards the feature.

Fastnet Rock colt Your Song has won two of their three runs to date and will resume in the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Roses (1200m) at Rosehill on September 1 while Ninth Legion, another son of Fastnet Rock, will go to either that race or the $100,000 Listed Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) the following Saturday at Warwick Farm.
