2011 Blue Diamond Stakes Day Results – Vesper Wins Listed Clamms Seafood Cup


Vesper wins the Listed Clamms Seafood Cup at Caulfield

The first Listed race of the day has been won by Robert Hickmott’s Vesper in the 2011 Clamms Seafood Cup on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

The 2000m Clamms Seafood Cup included a talented eight-horse field and was worth $100,000.

The race began when Vesper ran to the lead early after jumping well from the gates.

The four-year-old gelding was able to find a good early lead, having a comfortable run at the front of the field.

Above Average began to make his move at the 600 metre mark but was unable to keep up the pace.

Vesper stormed to a two lengths lead for the majority of the final straight, showing a good turn of foot at the home turn.

The Zabeel gelding was challenged late by Port Vell, who finished a length behind for second, and Down Under Boy who came home for an honest third.

Robert Hickmott commented after the race that Vesper may be eventually aimed at the 2011 Melbourne Cup.

Vesper will be now looking to contend the 2011 Australian Cup in two weeks time.

Vesper finished third in his last start at Flemington on February 19, 2011.

The gelding was the fifth four-year-old to win the Listed Clamms Cup in as many years.
