BIG NAME OUT OF SPRING

He was one of the stars of the Spring in 2021 however the current Cox Plate favourite and multiple Group One winner is out of this years Spring Carnival with connections favouring an extended period away from the track


Incentivise to miss the spring

The current Cox Plate favourite and winner of three Group Ones last Spring is set to miss this years Spring Carnival with connections choosing to keep superstar galloper Incentivise in the paddock and maximise his recovery time.

Connections of Incentivise have decided to miss the spring after trainer Peter Moody found the horse to be mentally fatigued.

Managing owner Ozzie Kheir confirmed there had been no further injuries to the Caulfield Cup winner and that connections were keen to play the long game in his recovery and focus on next Autumn and Spring as key targets.

“He has actually scanned 100 per cent again, his scans and X-rays are the same as what they were,” Kheir said.

“He has been in work for 16 weeks now but Peter is going to take a more cautious approach, he thinks the horse is mentally tired.

“His comments were he looks physically better than he ever has before, he is sound and the injury that was there is not bothering him at all.

“Peter said he feels like he is already a mentally tired horse.

“He wants to give him a freshen up and get him back into work late in the spring.”

Incentivise had been attending an injury rehab specialist in Queensland and was expected to feature in the Spring. He was prominent in betting across most of the big markets including holding favouritism in the Cox Plate.

“The rehab they do, it’s not them sitting in the paddock, they are literally in work the whole time so it takes a bit out of them,” Kheir said.

“There is absolutely no issues with him medically.

“Our conversations with Peter were always wait and see where we get to, we want to do the right thing by him.

“Peter wants to look after him and have a horse for the autumn and spring next year.”
