Rich Enuff Will Miss Entire 2015 Autumn Carnival

An offside tendon injury has ruled Rich Enuff out of the upcoming autumn carnival.

The colt’s trainer Ken Keys has decided to err on the side of caution and put a complete stop to Rich Enuff’s autumn campaign even though the injury is only minor.

He was to be targeted towards the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) on March 14 after featuring in the 57-strong nominations earlier this week.

The promising three-year-old already suffered setbacks to his preparation after an elevated white cell count saw him miss the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) last Saturday after being brought back from the spelling paddock to soon.

There’s no risk of that happening again, as Rich Enuff will now enjoy the entire autumn in the paddock.

“This decision is precautionary,” Keys said via Racing Victoria.

“Rich Enuff is not chronically lame in any way, it was more of a resting lameness.

“I originally thought that he may have picked up an infection in his back hock so we had him at Werribee Veterinary Clinic this past week.

“He has been scanned, there is an issue to his back offside tendon that could be trauma related or possibly strained.

“I will now keep him box or yard kept for the next month before we rescan the tendon and then know the full extent of the problem, hopefully he will be over it by then.

“The good thing is that we have picked this up early and the prognosis from the vets is very positive.”

Rich Enuff enjoyed plenty of success during the spring, which was his first official carnival, winning three of his five starts and finishing second in another.

The colt won the Listed McKenzie Stakes (1200m) first up on August 23 before also taking out the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m), which earned him a spot in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11.

Rich Enuff was very fast out to lead and controlled the race until pressure went on at the 600 metre mark. He kicked clear with 300 metres to go but was nabbed late by Shooting To Win, finishing runner-up.

He was last seen in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m), which was his first unplaced run. It is unlikely that Rich Enuff will be seen before this year’s spring carnival.
