Deserved break for Kementari

FOLLOWING his luckless run when a beaten favourite in last month’s Group 1 Doncaster Mile, Godolphin’s Kementari is now enjoying a spell out of training as connections look forward to resuming his programme in the spring. “He will head out to the paddock and enjoy a good break and I’m sure we will see an even stronger version of him next time he’s in training,” trainer James Cummings explained. Kementari won the Group 1 Randwick Guineas in March and ran a great race against his elders when third to Winx and Happy Clapper in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill two weeks later.

The colt was made favourite for the Doncaster but had his path blocked on several occasions, eventually finishing an eased down tenth. “He pulled up very well and as fresh as he was going into the race, largely on account of the fact that he was locked away all the way up the straight and was never clear until it was all over,” Cummings said. Reflecting on his season that also included a win in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes and the Group 2 Hobartsville Stakes Cummings added: “He had a preparation we can all be very proud of. We look forward to seeing the colt train on as a 4yo next season because he looks like he has heaps left to offer for the stable.”
