Carlton House Out Of 2013 Epsom Handicap

Following this week’s retirement of former top-weight Shoot Out, next month’s Epsom Handicap 2013 has lost another highly rated entry with Gai Waterhouse withdrawing the Queen’s horse Carlton House.

Announced on the Racing NSW website on Tuesday the news Street Cry stallion Carlton House is no longer targeting the $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Royal Randwick on October 5 leaves Waterhouse with 10 hopefuls in the race.

Imported British galloper Carlton House has had just one run down under when 13th on debut here in the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) back in March.

They were turned out after that one start in the autumn but had been performing well in their subsequent Sydney barrier trials.

At their most recent hitout the five-year-old was a narrow second over 1200m at Randwick on September 20 when ridden by Tommy Berry indicating they would be on track for a big spring return.

Waterhouse however has officially withdrawn them from the Epsom leaving their first-up run this season up in the air.

The stayer was also a notable omission at second declaration stage yesterday for both the $2.5 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 19 and the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) the following Saturday in Melbourne.

Epsom Handicap betting meanwhile is led by the Chris Waller-trained Bill Ritchie Handicap winner Boban ($5) and Guy Walter’s Cameron Handicap champ in Newcastle last week Toydini ($5.50).

As for the shortest-priced of Waterhouse’s gallopers still in Epsom contention, her in-form High Chaparral four-year-old Ecuador pays $16 which is the same price Carlton House was at before their removal from markets.

Waterhouse’s other remaining Epsom Handicap 2013 entries include Our Desert Warrior, Ashokan, Glencadam Gold and Spurtonic.
