Waller Loses 2013 Doomben Cup Hope Stout Hearted

A sad story comes out of the Chris Waller stables today with the devastating news his Doomben Cup 2013 hopeful Stout Hearted has been put down due to a major hoof injury.

The imported five-year-old, a son of Dynaformer who sired 2010 Melbourne Cup winner Americain, has been racing in Australia with Waller since early 2011.

Their best achievement with him was their Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) win last September.

Fourth to Glencadam Gold in the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) during the spring the gelding came back this year but was disappointing first-up when 14th in the Ajax Stakes.

They were last seen crossing two and a half lengths away sixth to Skyerush in the Doncaster Prelude at Randwick on April 13, Waller predicting improvement as they were stepped up in distance.

Their major goal this season was to be the $500,000 Group 1 Doomben Cup (2020m) on May 18 during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

All of that has been lost however with the sad news Stout Hearted was put down on Wednesday due to an injury they sustained when escaping from their trackwork jockey on Saturday morning and subsequently scratched from the Hollindale Stakes on the Gold Coast.

“The injury became worse than first thought and we had to put him down,” owner Geoff Grimish told Brisbane’s RadioTAB.

“It ocurred in the very lower extremity of his hoof and it’s something you can’t treat or put a screw in.

“After the vet’s advice we had to get him put down.”

Stout Hearted was rated a $21 chance in the Doomben Cup odds which are led by Hollindale winner Lights Of Heaven ($3.20), Peter Moody’s mare second in the race 12 months ago.

Following closely in the markets is then one of Waller’s six remaining Doomben Cup-bound stayers, Foreteller ($3.70).

Winner of the Ranvet Stakes three back, Foreteller ran a close second in the Hollindale coming within half a length of Lights Of Heaven after working their way from the back of the field.

The other horses in Waller’s 2013 Doomben Cup contingent are then Rowley Mile runner-up Beaten Up ($17), his rising 10-year-old veteran Danleigh ($26), German import Illo ($26), Gosford Cup winner Moriarty ($26) and Class Is Class ($31).
