Kirramosa Out Of Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival 2015

Injury has ruled the John Sargent-trained Kirramosa out of the 2015 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival with a likely three month stint on the sidelines forcing her to miss her The Championships targets this season.

Winner of the 2013 Crown Oaks, Kirramosa spent nine months away from racing after that Group 1 win two years back and hasn’t enjoyed a victory since.

Her chances of a big autumn comeback have now also been dashed with Thompson confirming she had suffered a hairline fracture to a pedal bone discovered via an x-ray this week.

The Alamosa four-year-old won’t be seen until the spring now where she’ll be looking to improve on her form from last year’s carnival.

Her most recent run was in the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m) on October 11 last year where she finished a disappointing 11th of 12 runners.

She was beaten over seven lengths by the winner Fawkner and was never a factor in the race settling second last early from her wide barrier nine draw and never improving on her position.

Kirramosa was nominated for a host of Group 1 staying features in the autumn.

She held nominations for three features on Day 2 of The Championships on April 11 with entries in the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m), $1.6 million Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) and $1 million Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick.

Before the fracture was discovered, the mare looked on track after a smart 1050m trial win at Randwick defeating Avoid Lightning in a nice effort on February 10.

Obviously disappointed she won’t be seen in the autumn, Thompson is keeping positive and believes she’ll be back to full fitness with a 100% recovery before the spring.

“That’s racing,” Sargent told Racenet.

“It’s really disappointing because she was back to her top. She came through that trial so well.

“But then she went sore and what I thought was a stone bruise ended up being a hairline fracture.”

“She will need three months off. One month in her box, one in a yard then another month in the paddock.

“The good news is she should recover from this 100 percent, so I’m confident she’ll be back for the spring.”

While Kirramosa is out of the autumn there are still plenty of star mares gearing up for big campaigns to get behind online now at where new depositing players are being rewarded with bonus bets valued up to $250 by quoting the code BETBONUS!
