Fangirl’s autumn campaign cut short

Fangirl, one of Chris Waller’s leading chargers towards The Championships, has had her autumn campaign declared over after a Friday morning incident required her to be transported for veterinary treatment.

Waller announced via X (formerly Twitter) that a wound to one of the five-year-old mare’s legs was enough to end the current preparation but was not career ending.

“Unfortunately, Fangirl will not take place during the Autumn Carnival due to an incident this morning where she has sustained a wound to her leg,” Waller said via statement.

“It is significant enough to transport her to the vet clinic ensuring it heals as quickly as possible and no risks are takenbut our stable veterinarian has advised that she would not be able to race during the Autumn.”Fangirl finished second last start to Think It Over in the Group 1 Verry Elleegant Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on March 2 after winning the Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) a fortnight earlier.

Among her three wins at the highest level so far, Fangirl took out the Group 1 King Charles Stakes (1600m) last October.

The mare has been removed from major online bookmakers’ feature markets.
