No 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival for Rekindled Interest

Former Cox Plate placegetter Rekindled Interest will play no role at the 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival with trainer Jim Conlan targeting a spring return.

Rekindled Interest

Rekindled Interest will play no part at the Autumn Carnival

The five-year-old underwent knee surgery following his last-place failure in the Cox Plate which was the end of a disappointing spring campaign.

From four spring outings the Redoute’s Choice gelding was only able to record one minor placing in the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes in September.

Conlan said he is back in work and will have a light preparation but is absolutely no chance of racing until the spring.

“He’s done his rehab time now and he’s back in light work,” he said.

The Mornington trainer will again target the Moonee Valley specialist at the Cox Plate, the race in which his career highlight came in 2011.

“He’s a weight-for-age horse and he loves Moonee Valley,” Conlan said.

Rekindled Interest finished behind Pinker Pinker and Jimmy Choux in that year’s Cox Plate in a campaign in which he won the Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes and finished third in the Mackinnon Stakes.

He was solid last autumn where he went within a head of scoring his first ever Group 1 win when edged out by Metal Bender in the George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill.

The often inconsistent gelding has won three times and recorded five minor placings from 20 starts and collected nearly $900,000 in prizemoney.

Rekindled Interest may be missing from the autumn but the action is just around the corner.

Markets are now available at bookmaker.com.au for a number of the major spring races including the Australian Guineas, Newmarket Handicap, Australian Cup, Blue Diamond Stakes and Doncaster Mile.

The Races.com.au preferred bookie is the best place to back an autumn winner due to their oustanding odds as well as their huge $400 bonus bet available to customers who sign quoting the code BONUSBET.
