Injured Ibicenco in Doubt for 2013 Sydney Cup

Last Saturday’s Sandown Cup winner Ibicenco may not be seen racing down under next season with the now Peter Moody-trained former European having to undergo surgery for a bone chip leaving their Sydney Cup 2013 campaign under a cloud of doubt.

Sandown Cup winner Ibicenco may miss out on the 2013 Sydney Cup after undergoing surgery

Previously prepared by ace English trainer Luca Cumani Shirocco stallion Ibicenco travelled to Australia for the spring originally set to target the famous Melbourne Cup.

After a seventh in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup and a luckless fourth in the Lexus Stakes however the five-year-old missed out on a start in the ‘race that stops a nation’.

They did score a small consolation prize for connections when, still under Cumani’s care, they took out the Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) on November 17 earning a $100,000 bonus as a horse balloted out of the Melbourne Cup field.

Since transferred to the Victorian stables of Moody Ibicenco was to enjoy a spell before being bought back in the autumn where their grand final target would be the $500,000 Group 1 Sydney Cup over the two miles at Royal Randwick on April 27, 2013.

Those plans may have to be shelved however with the OTI-owned galloper booked for surgery that will likely see their return set back to late autumn according to OTI’s Terry Henderson.

“Unfortunately Ibicenco sustained a small chip in his fetlock on Saturday and that’ll have to come out,” Henderson said.

“So he won’t be around until late autumn.”
