04/03/02 Doncaster Drama: Lonhro to Be Spelled
r6lonhro2.jpg (12423 bytes)Woodlands Stud and John Hawkes have been dealt another blow with news that their outstanding three-year-old Lonhro would be sent for a spell and would miss the Group One Doncaster Handicap.

Bookmakers and the TAB fixed odds betting services immediately suspended betting in the 1600 metre Sydney event after news surfaced earlier today.

While Hawkes refused to comment Woodlands Stud's Trevor Lobb told AAP's Caryl Williamson that the colt is headed to the paddock.

"It's nothing serious and he's gone to the paddock for a few weeks," Lobb said.

"Hopefully, we can get him back soon," he added.

r6lonhro3.jpg (11243 bytes)Lonhro, a son of the mighty Octagonal, was due to have started in Saturday's $141,200 Prolock Phar Lap Stakes at Rosehill. Instead only Unworldly's half brother Gordo will carry the cerise colours.

A Group One winner in both Sydney and Melbourne, Lonhro was unbeaten this preparation and looked certain to add another feature race when he was among the early entries for Saturday's Group Two event.

Today's news that Lonhro would miss the remainder of the Autumn carnival comes hot on the heels of the news late last month that Viscount went a miss and would be immeditaly retired to stand at Woodlands Stud.
