Mawingo Has Troubles Ahead of 2012 Caulfield Cup

He was considered among the favourites for the 2012 Caulfield Cup prior to the spring but Anthony Freedman-trained import Mawingo has so far failed to live up to the hype.

Mawingo & Lights Of Heaven

Mawingo (black & white checked sleeves) has pulled up sore following the Underwood Stakes

The four-year-old finished last first-up in the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) and was beaten by nearly six lengths when eighth in the Underwood Stakes last weekend.

Mawingo has pulled up with shin soreness following the Underwood and is now a $51.00 outsider for the Caulfield Cup.

“It’s unusual for a horse of his age to be shin sore, but the tracks here are harder than what he was accustomed to in Europe,” Freedman said.

“I will have to manage his program from now on.”

Mawingo arrived in Australia before the Australian winter where he impressed in his first campaign that was run mostly in Queensland.

The German-bred entire finished third in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes before winning the Group 1 Doomben Cup and again finishing third in the Brisbane Cup.

His win in the Doomben Cup has guaranteed him a start in the Caulfield Cup as he currently sits at 14th in the order of entry with 54.5kg.

It has been a difficult start to the spring for the Freedman stable with fellow import Lucas Cranach ruled out with injury before his spring campaign even began.

Eighty horses remain in contention for the Caulfield Cup following the latest round of acceptances.

Last year’s winner Southern Speed heads the order of entry with Folding Gear second after scoring ballot exemption for his win in the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes on the weekend.
