Midwinter out of Group 1 Rookie Rebel


Silver Chief winner Midwinter has been withdrawn from Saturday week’s Group 1 Rookie Rebel after injuring a monkey muscle.

The son of Cosmic Rumble and Tania Two Shoes will be replaced in the $110,000 final by Sisco Rage, who comes into the field after initially being drawn as first reserve.

Sisco Rage – trained by John Galea – finished third in last year’s version of the Rookie Rebel behind Cosmic Wise, and also made the 2015 Group 1 Australian Cup, finishing fourth behind Luca Neveelk.

The son of High Earner has won 27 races and placed on a further 52 occasions from 130 race starts, accumulating over $233,000 in prizemoney along the way.

The new emergencies for Saturday week’s Rookie Rebel are Cosmic Owl and Emrys.
