Two-time Sovereign Award winner and multiple stakes champion Mr Havercamp is out of the Grade 1 $1 million Ricoh Woodbine Mile.

Mr Havercamp, Canada's 2018 Champion Older Male and Champion Turf Male, has been ruled out of contesting his second straight Mile.

“We weren't 100 per cent with his breeze, and we've decided to wait,” said trainer Catherine Day Phillips.

The Ontario-bred, owned by Sean and Dorothy Fitzhenry (Sean Fitzhenry also bred the dark bay), is an eight-time winner from 14 starts, including six stakes triumphs.

Finishing second to Oscar Performance in last year's Mile, Mr Havercamp boasts three graded triumphs (last year's Grade 2 Play the King and Grade 2 Autumn, and this year's Grade 3 Forbidden Apple) for his connections.

Sent on his way at 13-1 in the Forbidden Apple, Mr Havercamp took control at the stretch call of the one-mile event contested over Saratoga's inner turf course and held on for a half-length victory.

In his latest start, on August 11, the five-year-old Court Vision-Tennessee Lamb gelding finished fourth in the Grade 3 Seagram Cup Stakes.

Mr Havercamp launched his career in 2017, winning his first two races, and four of his first five engagements, including a pair of added-money events, the Vice Regent and Bunty Lawless.
