Our Ivanhowe To Spell For Spring Campaign

Co-trainer Lee Freedman confirmed that Our Ivanhowe Horseform would not be seen again during the Queensland carnival, believing the six-year-old would benefit from a break before being aimed at the spring majors.

Our Ivanhowe had been plagued by hoof problems during his autumn campaign but showed what he was capable of yesterday with a fast-finishing win in the Group 1 2016 Doomben Cup.


That was Our Ivanhowe’s first win in nine Australian starts, his previous best results being a third placing in last spring’s Group 1 Caulfield Cup and finishing runner up in the Group 3 Bart Cummings.

R7 DOOMBEN 21 May 2016
Hardy Brothers Doomben Cup , 2000m
Race Synopsis: German-bred import Our Ivanhowe was impressive in winning his third race at Group One level and his first in this country after scoring a strong win. He settled back in eighth place, behind a solid pace (first 1400m 1:25.66) before improving nicely behind runners nearing the home turn. He was switched deep at the 200m and then produced a strong finishing run, appearing to score with something in hand. The favourite Hauraki was seventh on the rails before tracking up nicely (wide with cover) approaching the home turn. He looked the winner when he got to the front at the 100m and he could not hold off the late-closing winner, fighting back for a very sound second placing. It’s Somewhat was fifth, one off the rails, before making a strong (wide) run at the coming to the 600m. He challenged at the home turn and then battled strongly for a good third. Volkstok’n’barrell had a nice trip in fourth place on the rails before getting along the inner to challenge on straightening. He then battled on soundly for (1.6 lengths) fourth, albeit after having every chance.
