Whobegotyou On Path To Third 2011 Cox Plate Run

August 9th, 2011

Whobegotyou will begin his third Cox Plate preparation when he lines up for the Group 2 Lawrence Stakes at Caulfield this Saturday August 13, 2011.

The six-year-old gelding pleased trainer Mark Kavanagh during a jump out at Flemington last Friday.

“He didn’t go too bad,” Kavanagh said.

“I’m happy with him.

“I will study the entries for Saturday and check on the weather but he will probably run.

“He’s well and heading for his third Cox Plate and hopefully all goes well and he gets there.”

Whobegotyou was force to pull out of his Sydney autumn campaign after sustaining a slight ligament strain above his hock.

“We pulled the pin on going to Sydney because it was a niggling injury we couldn’t get right,” Kavanagh said.

“There are not many races for these horses and I won’t race them unless they are 100 per cent. I have shown that in the past.”

Kavanagh is planning to race Whobegotyou only lightly in the lead-up to the 2011 Cox Plate.

“There’s one race we are after and I haven’t really cranked him up yet,” Kavanagh said.

“He’s idling along and I will really put a bit of pressure on him in the next few weeks.

“We will space his races and make sure he is at his peak for Cox Plate Day.

“If he runs on Saturday that will give him four weeks to the Dato and we have the option of running him in the Memsie if we want.”
