Enjoy Me scratched after training accident

By Michael Guerin

A track work incident this morning has sidelined two of the Telfer team’s biggest chances at Alexandra Park tomorrow night but co-trainer Steve Telfer hopes for not long.

Enjoy Me got herself in a tangle when feeling a bit too good during Thursday morning trackwork and kicked out, getting her hind legs over the sulky shafts.

She has taken off some skin that will force the last-start Sires’ Stakes Championship winner to miss the first Nevele R Fillies heat at Alexandra Park tomorrow.

“I don’t think it is serious and because she had had a trial and is quite fit, which was half the problem with her feeling too good, I think we can still make the Peter Breckon Memorial on February 26,” says Telfer, who trains in partnership with his sister Amanda.

“If that is the case then she can definitely still make the Oaks (March 5) but we will know more on Monday.”

Last-start winner Dance Time was also caught up in the incident as he was on the lead being jogged behind Enjoy Me and also lost some skin but is expected to be back racing soon.

Telfer still has the favourite for the Nevele R heat with stable newcomer Darling Me drawn one and ready to win.
