Rich Enuff Suffers 2015 Autumn Carnival Setbacks

Plans to resume three-year-old Rich Enuff in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley this Saturday were halted after the colt had an elevated white cell count two weeks ago.

Trainer Ken Keys admits he may have brought Rich Enuff back from the spelling paddock too quickly after he received just two months off after the busy spring period.

Keys is not concerned about missing the 2015 Australia Stakes, believing there are plenty of other suitable races in the coming months for the colt to resume in.

“We had aimed to probably start in the Australia Stakes but I’m not that concerned that we’re missing it,” Keys told Sky Racing.

“The turnaround time (from his last run) is quite quick and in all honesty I would have liked to have given him a bit longer break.

“I guess we haven’t been in this situation with horses before and they’ve got to race, that’s their job.”

Rich Enuff had his first full campaign during the spring and has clearly not fully recuperated from his hectic and successful season.

The colt won the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m) first up in August on just his second career start before going on to also win the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m).

Rich Enuff then earned his place in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) field, which was his first Group One outing. He was very fast to lead and controlled the race until pressure went on 600 metres out. He kicked clear at the 300 metre mark but was just nabbed late by Shooting To Win.

His first finish outside the first three came three weeks later in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m). After dropping away, the colt finished six lengths behind winner Brazen Beau in seventh place.

Keys highlighted the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on March 14 as Rich Enuff’s autumn goal in Melbourne before potentially travelling to Sydney for the first time for The Championships.

The Group 1 Lightning Stakes (1000m) on February 21 was highlighted as a potential first-up run for the colt but any definitive plans are still seven to ten days away. Rich Enuff will likely have a jumpout at Cranbourne before then to help Keys plan his route.
