Rich Enuff Back in Work Ahead of 2015 Autumn Racing Carnival

Promising colt Rich Enuff ended his first campaign on a positive note after winning three of his five starts in the Melbourne spring racing carnival.

He was last seen finishing middle of the field in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on November 1. The colt was fast out the gate early and still travelling well at the 400m mark but couldn’t quicken and dropped away to seventh place, six lengths off the winner Brazen Beau. It was the colt’s first finish outside the top three.

After a month-long spell Rich Enuff has returned to work with trainer Ken Keys reporting the Written Tycoon colt is in great order.

Keys remains tight-lipped on any plans for Rich Enuff in the autumn, however he did note that the three-year-old would be kept to sprint distance.

By this logic he could potentially start his campaign in a race such as the Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on February 21 or the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield one week later.

“I imagine he’ll be kept to sprints without locking it in, obviously there’s a bit of water to go under the bridge yet but that’s what we’re leaning to,” Keys told Racing Victoria.

“One of the owners is away and he’s not back until next week and when he’s back we’ll sit down and have a chat about exactly what sort of races we go to.

“I have a feeling as we go into the preparation that he’ll be looking for a bit further but whether he gets to the mile again I don’t know.”

Rich Enuff entered the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m) first up in the spring with just one race to his name – a minor placing in the Friends Of Epworth Handicap (1000m) back in March. However the colt confidently won the McKenzie Stakes by two and a half lengths.

He then won two more races in September, the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m), before finishing runner up in the main event on October 11.

The colt was very fast out the gate to lead in the Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) and continued to control the race until the pressure went on at 600m out. He kicked clear at the 300m mark but was nabbed late by Shooting To Win.

Rich Enuff is sure to have a successful three-year-old autumn campaign with this form behind him. Make sure you follow his preparation at Ladbrokes.com.au – the best online bookmaker. Sign up today and you’ll receive up to $100 in a bonus match on your first bet.
