Incentivise may not return to trainer Peter Moody after a series of disagreements among some of his connections.

The future of 2021’s most-discussed horse is far from certain, with a major row developing within sections of the ownership group of Incentivise, placing a major doubt as to where the super galloper may continue his career.

Incentivise is currently in Queensland with his breeder and major part-owner Steve Tregea, recuperating from issues relating to his busy Melbourne spring preparation after a four-run campaign that culminated in his brave second placing as equal topweight in the Melbourne Cup.

It is, however, understood that Incentivise may not return to trainer Peter Moody’s Pakenham yard after a series of disagreements among some of his connections.

Just last week, Racing Australia upgraded the status of Incentivise as being ‘transferred’ out of Moody’s stables.

Horses that go for a spell, even a prolonged spell that Incentivise faces, are rarely officially transferred from their trainers unless their futures are wholly unclear or there is an intent for them to go to another stable.

Incentivise’s rise from complete obscurity to racing’s spotlight was clearly the racing story of the year in 2021.

So rapid was his rise, he went from an eighth placing in a Toowoomba maiden in March to stringing nine wins together – including victories in the Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes, Turnbull Stakes and Caulfield Cup – before his defeat by Verry Elleegant at Flemington in the biggest race of them all.

Incentivise was half-purchased earlier this year from his original owners, which included his breeder and original trainer Tregea, and sent to Moody for him to prepare the horse for a Caulfield and Melbourne Cup campaign.

Moody was contacted on Monday but declined to comment on the horse’s future.

Tregea also declined to comment on the situation other than to say the horse was suffering from a host of ailments, which include tears to his suspensory ligament and damage to his cannon bones and tendons.

He said the horse’s physical ability to continue his racing future remained unclear until the next round of scans on his injuries in late February.
