Keys Happy With Rich Enuff

Wednesday, 26th August 2015

Two recent barrier trial wins at Cranbourne have convinced trainer Ken Keys that prodigiously talented sprinter Rich Enuff is ready to return to racing in The Heath 1100 Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on Saturday. The Gr2-winning son of Written Tycoon will be having his first start since finishing seventh in the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes in November after suffering a ligament injury that ruled him out of the autumn. "I couldn't be happier but I know he has to live up to it on race day," Keys said. "Unfortunately he doesn't show us a lot in his track work so to see him trial well was very pleasing." Keys said Rich Enuff had thrived during his enforced break, returning to the stable a bigger and stronger racehorse. "He came in at just under 600kg. He held that weight right through until we started upping the ante at the trials and he will probably go to the races around the 580kg," he said. "He has sort of got taller and he looks more athletic. He looks good. First-up over 1100 metres, I'm sure that he is fit enough and strong enough for that. He has been in work since May, so he has the miles under him." Rich Enuff is being aimed at the Gr1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield on 26 September before a possible start in the either the Gr1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on 23 October, or the Gr1 Darley Classic (1200m) on 8 November.
