Rich Enuff ‘Bouncing’ Ahead of Possible Memsie Stakes Return

Rich Enuff has come through a solid piece of work “bouncing” according to trainer Ken Keys who is hopeful of rewarding connections of the Caulfield Guineas runner-up with a Group 1 win possibly in the 2015 Memsie Stakes this campaign.

The three-year-old Written Tycoon colt is progressing extremely well since coming back into work off a tendon injury to his off-hind leg that ruled him out of the autumn, and could be ready to race first-up sooner than the Cranbourne-based Keys first thought.

A three-time winner from six starts, Rich Enuff hasn’t run since his seventh behind the now retired-to-stud Brazen Beau in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington last November.

Before that he won three Black-Types on the trot including the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) and the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m).

He was also a brave runner-up when only a quarter-length off the winner Shooting To Win in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) last October over a distance Keys believes he is vulnerable.

This upcoming Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival the plan is to keep Rich Enuff under a mile as he chases a deserved Group 1 win.

After missing the autumn with injury, Keys thought the youngster might not be ready in time for the season’s opening elite level – the $400,000 Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) taking place at Caulfield Racecourse on August 29.

He had in mind instead the $400,000 Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at the same track a month later to give Rich Enuff more time.

The Memsie though is back in consideration following the impressive work and way he came through this week’s Tuesday morning gallop.

“We did our first bit of work this morning, a little bit of even time and he came off bouncing,” Keys told RSN.

Rich Enuff is raced in part by Woodside Park, new connections Keys will meet with over the coming weeks to map out an exact spring path with a focus on collecting a Group 1 over 1400m.

“The owners have been terrific,” Keys said.

“They felt he is a Group One horse and should be given every opportunity to win one, so they’ve run with it.”

Keys is yet to saddle-up a starter in either the Memsie Stakes or Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes during his years as a trainer.

The last horse to win the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes straight out of the Memsie without a run in between meanwhile was Barley A Moment who ran second in the lead-up race back in 2005.

Regal Roller completed the Memsie Stakes – Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes double the previous year.
