Manighar Out Of Caulfield Stakes and 2012 Melbourne Spring Carnival

Peter Moody’s star import Manighar will not take his place in the Group 1 2012 Caulfield Stakes on Saturday with injury ruling the six-year-old out of the entire 2012 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.


Manighar is out of the Melbourne Spring Carnival

The multiple Group 1 winner will be sent to the paddock after suffering a knee injury in the lead-up to Saturday’s Group 1 hitout.

Manighar was being aimed at the Cox Plate after a terrific autumn that saw him claim the BMW, Ranvet Stakes and Australian Cup.

He will undergo a minor operation before being spelled and coming back to attempt to repeat his autumn success next year.

Manighar’s withdrawal from the Caulfield Stakes will see New Zealand four-year-old Ocean Park assume clear favouritism.

The Cox Plate-bound entire arrived in Australian on the back of a win in the Group 1 Makfi Challenge Stakes and quickly showed he was up to class here witha  strong win in the Group 1 Underwood Stakes.

Jockey Glen Boss predicted he could prove to be a genuine Cox Plate contender following the Underwood Stakes win

Even when Manighar was still in the field Boss was predicting Ocean Park would be tough to beat this weekend.

“I’ve got a very big opinion of him and I can’t wait to see him come out next start and back up what he did the other day,” Boss said.

“He has got a Group 1 horse’s attitude. All the good horses I’ve ridden, they have all got that X-factor thing.”

There are now just seven horses in the Caulfield Stakes field, with dual Group 1 winner Sincero the main danger to Ocean Park.
