2010 Cox Plate Betting Shaken by Gloria De Campeao Retirement

The 2010 Cox Plate betting has been shaken by the sudden retirement of champion international galloper Gloria De Campeao. Her chances of appearing in Australia for the 2010 Cox Plate this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival have ended following the injury enforced retirement of the star seven-year-old.

Previously trained by Pascal Bary in France, Gloria De Campeo had an illustrious and lucrative career that included nine wins from 25 starts earning in excess of $11 million in prizemoney.

The veteran champion was looking to add an esteemed Australian Group 1 victory to their impressive resume, highlighted by a win in the $10 million Dubai World Cup back in March, with a run in the $3 million Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley on October 23.

A near-fore tendon injury sustained in a routine trackwork session has seen Gloria De Campeo retired for stud duties, however, knocking out one of the top drawcards of the Spring Carnival Racing season.

In an attempt to still attract a strong international contingent to this year’s Cox Plate, the Moonee Valley Racing Club (MVRC) has offered a generous $100,000 return for all internationally-trained runners in the race.

Two classy international horses that could still represent overseas stables in the Cox Plate are the Hong Kong-trained Able Son and Famous Name, trained by premier English trainer Dermot Weld.

In other 2010 Cox Plate news, the John Wallace-trained Shoot Out has emerged as the hot favourite to take out the staying showdown following his thrilling win in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield last Saturday.

Follow the link to read the details of Shoot Out’s win in the 2010 Bletchingly Stakes.

The four-year-old High Chaparral gelding kick started his ambitious spring campaign in style coasting to victory ahead of a fine field of sprinting stars.

Shoot Out, who will also be aimed at the Caulfield and Melbourne Cup double, is now the early favourite become the 2010 Cox Plate winner at bookmakers around Australia and will likely open at short odds when Ladbrokes.com.au start their markets.
