Dear Demi’s 2014 Spring Carnival is Over

When nominations for this Saturday’s Victoria Derby Day at Flemington closed yesterday, there was one notable absentee.

Clarry ConnersDear Demi was nowhere to be seen, with the trainer announcing the mare’s 2014 spring carnival is over.

Dear Demi was due to run in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) alongside the likes of Catkins and 2014 Turnbull Stakes winner Lucia Valentina. However an elevated temperature on Sunday night has forced her to the paddock instead.

“It hasn’t been a good couple of weeks for us with her. It’s disappointing but there isn’t much we can do,” Conners told TVN.

“She had an elevated temperature so we’ve to treat her and that will put us out for the spring.”

The five-year-old mare was scratched from the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) one day before the race due to a throat infection.

“It was all going well, she won nicely at Moonee Valley and then I thought ran okay in the Caulfield Stakes,” Conners said.

“But since then we haven’t had much luck so I’ll take her back home and get ready for the autumn.”

Dear Demi has had an eventful spring campaign and won’t be going to the paddock without a win to her name.

She finished fifth in the Group 3 W.W. Cockram Stakes (1200m) first-up before finishing runner-up in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m). Despite being held up she still finished off well in a top second up effort.

The mare then took out the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) on September 26 before finishing midfield in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) against the boys. She had the ideal inside run after jumping from barrier one and kept railing home. She was right there at the turn but disappointed late.

Even without Dear Demi in the 2014 Myer Classic field, it looks to be an exciting race full of classy fillies and mares.

Group 1 Schweppes Oaks (2000m) winner May’s Dream leads the betting market, offering $4.80 to win at although Group 2 Tristrac Stakes (1400m) winner last time out Sweet Idea is a close second at $5.
