Wohler Could Dominate 2015 Melbourne Cup with another German Import

The 2014 Melbourne Cup winning trainer Andreas Wohler may have lost the care of winner Protectionist after the entire was transferred to Kris Lees’ stables but the international trainer could have another German-import winner on his hands sooner rather than later.

Singing, who is owned by Australian Bloodstock just like Protectionist, was due to join Lees’ stables for the 2014 spring racing carnival but an injury in a Group 2 over 2414m at Hamburg in June, in which he ran second to the 2014 Melbourne Cup winner, saw the four-year-olds Australian plans scratched.

He has not been seen since then and the entire will now join Wohler’s stables next year in an effort to get him back to 100 per cent and back on the racecourse.

“He is qualified for both the Cups already and we are just going to take him along slowly and see if Andreas can get him back in form,” Australian Bloodstock’s Jamie Lovett told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“It is similar to what happened with Protectionist this year, we had to be happy that he was back before committing to coming out here.

“It will be the same with Singing. He needs to win a couple of races to be assured of start in the big races, if he does he will be here next spring. There are no guarantees in racing though.”

After finishing in the first three in two Group Three races at France earlier in the year, Singing earned himself a spot in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) field on October 18, which Lovett is confident he would have been a contender for if it weren’t for his injury.

“He is a serious horse and if he didn’t get injured he would have been right in the Caulfield Cup this year,” Lovett said.

“He is a nice horse and it was very unfortunate that he had the problems and we didn’t get to see him out here.”

Protectionist is $13 favourite in the 2015 Melbourne Cup futures betting at Ladbrokes.com.au while Singing is currently a $34 chance.
