Iggi Pop shows no sign of hearing the fat lady sing

Like the ageing rocker of the same name, Iggi Pop shows no sign of hearing the fat lady sing.

The eight-year-old might be in the twilight of his career but could still clock up a half century of starts before retirement.

He will have start No.41 in Saturday’s Eremein Handicap (1800m) at Rosehill.

“He’s going well. He just had a canter round first-up and he’ll probably need this run on Saturday,” trainer Peter Robl said.

Providing Iggi Pop puts in a decent run at the weekend he will tackle the Kensei Handicap (2000m) at Rosehill on June 13 and ideally earn himself another trip to Queensland for the Listed Caloundra Cup at the Sunshine Coast in June.

Randwick-based Robl said Iggi Pop was among the most contented members of his team.

“He’s very happy. His work’s always good. He certainly seems to enjoy being around the stables and getting looked after,” he said.

After a race fall ended his riding career in 2015, Robl worked for John Sargent at Randwick before taking over a team of Segenhoe-owned horses from the trainer including Iggi Pop.

The gelding has been consistent without winning, racking up seven minor placings from 14 starts for Robl since recovering from a leg injury.

“He’s won $150,000-$160,000 since he’s been back,” Robl said.

“He’s a long way in front of a lot of horses.”

Robl said there were no plans to put Iggi Pop out to pasture on a permanent basis providing he stayed healthy and enthusiastic.

“There’s no reason why a horse like him still wouldn’t be competitive in an Albury, Wagga or Grafton Cup,” he said.

Robl also has Count Of Limonade resuming from an eight-month spell in a benchmark 85 race over 1500m.

The seven-year-old Irish import was formerly with Darren Weir in Victoria and was sent to Sydney for wet tracks over the winter.

Stablemate Brulee contests a benchmark 70 handicap and will be looking to make amends for her seventh at Randwick last weekend.

“She was ridden too close to the speed last start, which certainly doesn’t suit her,” Robl said.

“She’ll get ridden quiet, her normal pattern, and hopefully she can recapture her form.”
