Divine Prophet Spelled

Wednesday, 12th October 2016

The spring campaign of Caulfield Guineas hero Divine Prophet (Choisir-Prophet Jewel, by Encosta de Lago) is over with Team Hawkes deciding to send the Gr1 winner to the spelling paddock. Connections were considering a run in the Gr1 WS Cox Plate on Saturday week but have now turned their focus to the autumn. "He's fine, it is just a case of job done and he is going for a break," co-trainer Wayne Hawkes told racing.com. "He has got the Group One and we thought it was best to allow him to enjoy some time off." Divine Prophet - who is a full brother to Gr3 winner and dual Gr1 placegetter Proisir - secured his future as a stallion prospect with victory in last weekend's Guineas.
