2013 Strickland Stakes Winner Kincaple Melbourne Spring Carnival Bound

After announcing themselves as a stayer to watch with their Strickland Stakes 2013 victory at Belmont Park on the weekend the Adam Durrant-trained Kincaple has booked their trip to Victoria for the upcoming Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The rising Pentire eight-year-old posted their eighth career win at start number 29 on Saturday putting behind them for good the torn suspensory ligament that saw them spend 18 months out of action following the 2011 Perth Cup.

“(Part owner) Tony (Valentino) arranged for him to be sent down to Steve’s property where he ran up and down hill with the other horses on a 115-acre property,” Kincaple’s syndicate manager Peter Miguel said speaking of the horse’s recovery.

“He was at Steve’s for about 10 weeks when he rang up and said, ‘You’d better come and get this horse, he’s looking pretty good’.

“We sent the horse to Murdoch Veterinary Hospital where the result of the scan showed the injury was healing well.

“He then went to Kevin Regan at Oakford, where he did a magic job working him on a walking machine.

“We approached Adam (Durrant) and asked if he’d want to come into the horse with us.

“He was at Adam’s being worked up for the Strickland for several months before he started in the Hyperion.”

Boosting their prize money earned to over $440,000, the veteran galloper showed excellent improvement on their first-up seventh in the Group 3 Hyperion Stakes (1600m).

Facing a similar field of rivals they turned the tables relishing the step up in distance for the $125,000 Group 3 Strickland Stakes (2000m).

Winning their first race since the 2011 Kalgoorlie Cup when prepared by Mark Reed, Kincaple ($3.90) had a quarter length to spare over Grant Williams’ stakes winning mare Moonlight Bay ($18) on the line.

Another double figure roughie in God Has Spoken ($21) from the Neville Parnham stables was then a close third just half a length off the winner.

Their stablemate, dual Group 1 winner Playing God ($15), then rounded out the first four with the duo appreciating a gear change before Hyperion Stakes winner Black Tycoon crossed in fifth.

The victory was jockey Daniel Staeck’s fifth Strickland Stakes success following his wins with dual champions Finito (2001-02) and Marasco (2009-10).

So impressed with Kincaple’s effort was Durrant that the Lark Hill horseman has confirmed plans to take them to Melbourne to chase spring glory along with their Group 1 winning stablemate Mr Moet.

Rising six-year-old Mosayter gelding Mr Moet was a superstar during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

They won the Group 1 Railway Stakes first-up before a Kingston Town Classic second, CB Cox Stakes win and Perth Cup second.

That form earned them their maiden interstate assignments with the Melbourne Festival of Racing in the autumn.

Mr Moet was very competitive in their three runs there too including their Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) third behind All Too Hard.

He will kick off his second interstate campaign in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on September 7 heading towards the iconic Melbourne Cup 2013 on the first Tuesday of November.

Kincaple will also resume in the 2013 Makybe Diva Stakes or the $220,000 Group 2 W.H. Stock Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on September 14.

The end-of-season Perth winter racing actions continues at Belmont Park this weekend with the running of the $80,000 Listed Belmont Oaks (2000m) for the fillies.

So head over to bookmaker.com.au and get ready for the weekend’s racing action by signing up with the bookie that also offers the hottest future Group 1 racing markets for the spring majors.
