''Igugu returns in Listed race''
September 25, 2013

IGUGU will make her return to the racetrack in the Listed Shadwell International Stallions Rosemary Stakes over 1600m at Newmarket, UK, on Friday.

Igugu has been prepared a stone’s throw away from the course at Abington House and Mike de Kock said on Wednesday that the team was looking forward to see the champion racemare back in action.

Igugu, who was plagued by “female problems” in Dubai and ran below par in three outings, stopped off in Hong Kong on her way to the UK to contest the QEII Cup in April, finishing 8th of 14 runners. She hasn’t raced since.

Mike commented on Wednesday: “Igugu’s had a good rest and seems to be over her hormonal problems. It looks like she’s on the right road back to her best. I’m really just trying to get her back to what we all know she is capable of. This listed race doesn’t look all that strong, it will give us an indication of where we stand with her now.”

Pat Cosgrave has been engaged to ride Igugu for the first time.

Here's a replay of the Rosemary Stakes at Newmarket.
It's always great to see her run.
And I believe that Igugu ran very well yesterday. 8-)
