Rich Enuff On Track for 2015 Spring Racing Carnival

Three-year-old colt Rich Enuff was on track for the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) on March 14 at Flemington however an offside tendon injury ruled him out of the entire autumn carnival in late January.

Rich Enuff’s trainer Ken Keys decided to err on the side of caution to end the colt’s season before it had begun but admits the injury did worry him quite a bit. However the star colt continues to please Keys in recovery and is on track for a return in the spring.

“I had him rescanned a week ago and the injury has improved a great deal,” Keys told Racing Victoria.

“Although we were told that it was relatively minor issue, it certainly made me worry a bit as he is such a good horse.

“There is still hope that he will overcome it completely and I can start focusing on the Spring Carnival later this year with him, the prognosis from the vets has been very positive.”

Rich Enuff enjoyed a successful spring campaign, winning three of his five starts including the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m), and finishing a close second to Shooting To Win in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

The colt ended his season with a midfield run in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on November 1. He was fast out the gates early and still travelling well at the 400m mark but couldn’t quicken off his Guineas run and dropped away.

This was the last time Rich Enuff was seen on the track and he won’t be seen until roughly the same time this year after Keys was forced to abandon his autumn preparation.

The trainer still doesn’t know what caused the tendon injury but is happy the colt is recovering fast and well. He has plans to bring Rich Enuff back to work in June ahead of the 2015 spring racing carnival.

“I still don’t know how he injured himself, it could have been trauma-related or a tendon strain,” Keys continued.

“His recovery is through rest and he is getting plenty of that.

“The pleasing thing is that he has furnished into a magnificent-looking colt as he has grown and thickened up impressively.

“I intend on bringing him back into work in June and then start a program aimed at the big sprint races during the Spring Carnival.”
