Mawingo Out of 2012 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival

Anthony Freedman’s reigning Doomben Cup winner Mawingo has been sent to the paddock immediately and will not return this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the Tertullian four-year-old suffering from a virus.

Mornignton-based Freedman ordered tests to be done on his Group 1 winning German import after Mawingo, who enjoyed a stellar campaign in Queensland during the winter winning the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) and running a good third to Lights Of Heaven in the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m), after their two below par performances this time in.

They ran dead last upon resuming in the Group 2 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on September 8 when defeated by over eight lengths before their last start eighth behind Cox Plate-bound Ocean Park in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes (1800m).

Mawingo, who was to have run in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on Caulfield Guineas Day this Saturday, was found to have been suffering from a virus but is expected to make a full recovery before being bought back for the autumn riches.

“His past two runs were below par, but the blood tests failed to show up anything, but a recent test showed he has a virus in his system, which needs to be treated,” Freedman confirmed.

“At this stage of the spring, it is fruitless continuing.

“He can have the rest of the spring in a paddock, and we will bring him back in the autumn, along with Lucas Cranach, who is recovering well from his bone-chip operation.”

The stallion was nominated for all the spring majors but was not among the third acceptors for the $2.65 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) or the first declarations for the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) yesterday.

While Freedman is now without a player in the spring majors this year there are still plenty of talented stayers in spring cups contention for 2012 for you to get behind online at
