Carriages Misses 2014 Calaway Gal Stakes Due to Injury

Two-year-old filly Carriages looked to be the most impressive runner in the Listed Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m) at Doomben Racecourse this Saturday, however she was shockingly absent from the final field released earlier this morning (Wednesday).

It has since been revealed that the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly injured herself during track work on Wednesday morning, which is what caused her to be a non-acceptance for the $100,000 black-type race.

Waterhouse’s racing manager Mark Newnham revealed to TVN that Carriages struck herself in the sand roll and endured a quarter-crack to her heel. He reassured that the injury will not rule the filly out of the 2015 Magic Millions Carnival at the Gold Coast on January 10 but she is unfortunately unable to run at Doomben on Saturday.

“Gai will pick another lead-in race or give her a trial before the Millions,” Newnham reassured.

The Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) running at the Gold Coast on December is one of those options for the filly, which would get her acclimatised to the Gold Coast tracks as well as Group racing.

Carriages finished third in the TAB Betting Season Plate (1000m) on her debut early in November before impressively winning the Magic Millions Clockwise Classic (1000m) by two lengths on November 22.

She was very fast out the gate to cross over from seven wide and lead. She was running along and got most of them off the bit before kicking on and fighting off all challenges.

Considering how well the filly handled the right hand run of the track, she is an early favourite to win the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on January 10.

Online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au has just opened its early futures odds for the 2015 Magic Millions 2YO Classic with Carriages on the second line of betting at $8 along with Pepperano. Wicked Intent is the early favourite at $6 after winning both the 2YO Colts & Geldings Plate (900m) by over two lengths and the Breakfast Creek Hotel QTIS (1050m) by a whopping four and a half lengths.

The unbeaten colt will run at Doomben this Saturday in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1050m) where he will jump from barrier four under Chris Munce.
