Inside Running: Ken Keys believes 1400m will be optimal distance for Rich Enuff

In the spring Rich Enuff finished a brave second in the Caulfield Guineas and seventh in the Coolmore Stud Stakes.

TRAINER Ken Keys is happy with the progress of gun galloper Rich Enuff.

Rich Enuff has been in work for seven weeks but Keys hasn’t pencilled in a return run just yet.

He thought 1400m would be Rich Enuff’s optimal distance this time in and is looking at Caulfield’s Memsie and Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

Keys’ stayer Like A Carousel has also been back in work for seven weeks.

The Cranbourne trainer said he would set the Sydney Cup placegetter for the Melbourne Cup, taking in The Bart Cummings at Flemington and Moonee Valley Cup.

Slow progress

AMY Herrmann, injured when she fell in a jumps trial at Morphettville a month ago, is making progress.

Thoroughbred Racing South Australia yesterday released a statement saying Herrmann’s short-term memory was slowly improving but there was still a long road ahead for the 27-year-old.

Doctors hope she will be allowed visitors in a fortnight.

Weir shuffle

THERE’S been a shuffling of roles at Warrnambool for two young trainers.

Daniel Bowman, who has been foreman for Darren Weir, will branch out on his own from August 1.

Bowman trained Jarrah Twist to win the final race at Warrnambool on Sunday.

Jarrod MacLean will become Weir’s Warrnambool foreman and will keep a small team of his own in work.

Time’s up, Neil

TWELVE-year-old Run Neil Run continued his career-best form with a second at Geelong Synthetic yesterday, which followed a win and a third there also in 0-58 class.

But the gelding is close to his last run as the Rules Of Racing state that 13-year-olds, which is what Run Neil Run will turn on August 1, are banned from racing.

Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey said there were no exceptions.
