Whobegotyou on the mend for shot at Cox Plate redemption

June 23rd, 2010

Whobegotyou’s plans to take on the 2010 Cox Plate were under threat after he suffered a nasty cut to his leg in the Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm earlier this month. But trainer Mark Kavanagh has revealed that his star stayer is on the mend.

“Yes, I was certainly a bit worried there. But, thankfully, things have gone the right way and the wound is healing well,” Kavanagh said.

Whobegotyou will have an extended stay in Queensland to recuperate from his injury as Kavanagh has decided to rest him in the warmer weather for a couple more weeks before returning to his stables at Flemington.

Kavanagh will be hoping Whobegotyou can overcome his injury and have a good preparation for this year’s Cox Plate after the disappointment of last year. Whobegotyou was the favourite for the 2009 Cox Plate at Moonee Valley at $2.80 but had a disappointing run and finished out of the placings in 6th.
