INCENTIVISE OUT FOR THE LONG TERM

A hefty Spring campaign appears to have taken its toll on Group One winning horse Incentivise as recent veterinary scans have shown up multiple injuries that will now keep the Queenslander out for the foreseeable future

The injuries found in the scan now mean that the hardened stayer will now not race again for the foreseeable future which casts doubt on any sort of Autumn campaign where the Sydney Cup was a likely target.

Having only just arrived back in Queensland to spell the gelding was sent straight to the world class University of Queensland Veterinary Hospital at Gatton where in detail scans discovered injuries to both front suspensory ligaments.

When asked for comment, managing owner Steve Tregea confirmed the injuries would stop Incentivise from competing on a long-term scale.

“He has had exhaustive scans along with an MRI at the University of Queensland Vet Hospital at Gatton and it found damage to his fetlocks,” Tregea said.

“He has to be re-scanned in February to see where it is at then. The report says it takes three to six months to heal and they will advise from there.

“There is a chance he doesn’t make the winter carnival as a result.”

Incentivise will now remain at Tregea’s Windermere Stud property to undergo thorough treatment as the stable attempt to bring the gelding back to his best. 

“He is up here at the moment recovering, he has substantial follow-up treatment to come including PRP (Plasma-Rich Protein) and he has to have shockwave treatment every week,” Tregea said.

The injury caps of a whirlwind year for the 5 year old gelding who went on an impressive 9 win streak before finishing second behind Verry Elleegant in the Melbourne Cup.

Before that Incentivise went from winning several Group graded races during the Winter Carnival to rattling of an impressive Group 1 hat trick in Melbourne when winning the Makybe Diva Stakes, Turnbull Stakes as well as the $5m Caulfield Cup.
