D U A L G r o u p O n e w i n n e r Wh o b e g o t y o u i s t h e l a t e s t au­tumn ca­su­alty f or t rainer Mark Ka­vanagh.

Ka­vanagh last week halted the au­tumn cam­paign of 2009 Mel­bourne Cup win­ner Shock­ing, who pulled up be­low ex­pec­ta­tions fol­low­ing his win in the Aus­tralian Cup.

Whobe­go­tyou was a last-start win­ner of the Group Two Blamey Stakes ( 1600m) at Flem­ing­ton 10 days ago, but Ka­vanagh re­ported yes­ter­day that the five-year-old had a lig­a­ment strain.

‘‘ Un­for­tu­nately Whobe­go­tyou is lame and is out un­til the spring car­ni­val,’’ Ka­vanagh said. ‘‘ He has a mild strained lig­a­ment above a hock and we will be send­ing him to the pad­dock.’’

Whobe­go­tyou had been sec­ond favourite for the Don­caster Mile at Rand­wick on April 16, with More Joy­ous firm­ing from $ 2.60 to $ 2.30 fol­low­ing his with­drawal.

T h e B l a m e y S t a k e s w a s Whobe­go­tyou’s sec­ond run since he fin­ished third to So You Think in the Cox Plate last Oc­to­ber.

The pop­u­lar chest­nut re­sumed with a hard-fought sec­ond to More Joy­ous in the Group One F u t u r i t y S t a k e s ( 1 4 0 0 m) a t Caulfield on Fe­bru­ary 26.
