Caulfield Stakes Win Earns Descarado 2011 Cox Plate Run

Descarado is on track for a Cox Plate 2011 run after winning the Group 1 Caulfield Stakes today October 8, 2011.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained five-year-old turned around his racing performance with a win after finishing a disappointing ninth in the Group 2 Shannon Stakes last start.

Descarado, who won last year’s Caulfield Cup, is nominated for both the Cox Plate and the 2011 Melbourne Cup.

Waterhouse felt Descarado had produced the perfect Cox Plate lead-up run in today’s Caulfield Stakes 2011.

“(It was a) brilliant ride by Nash (Rawiller) and a brilliant ride by the horse”

“He’s come right and he’s come right at the right time.

“He’s carrying more condition than he ever has before.”

Co-owner Ross Herron was thrilled with Descarado’s winning run.

“This is only his second run in… so it’s a fantastic training effort for him to do that today,” Herron said.

“He’s got a real (Cox Plate) chance.”

Descarado has now won five of his 21 race starts and has accrued more than $2.4 million in prize money.
