2011 Caulfield Cup – Shootoff the outsider – horse profile

Shootoff has flown under the radar in the lead up to the 2011 $2.5m Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m).

The four-year-old has been prepared in Sydney and didn’t come into focus until his third run from a spell when 2nd to The Verminator in the Group 1 Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on October 1.

It was final lead up in his attempt to win the 2011 Group 1 Caulfield Cup.

2011 Caulfield Cup horse profile:

# 8 Shootoff (barrier 16) 55kg

  • Four  year old bay horse
  • Record: 20 starts 4 wins 1 second 2 third
  • Winning distance range 1550m to 2400m
  • Best win: 2011 Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) at EagleFarm
  • Trainer: Graeme Rogerson, Randwick
  • Jockey, Kerrin McEvoy.
  • Latest price Luxbet $41

As a youngster Shootoff had always shown ability with stout displays that would get him close without winning the  cigar.

It became obvious that he performed better on wet tracks winning the Group 3 Frank Packer and Lord Mayors Cup (1900m) in successive starts on wet ground.

The class factor got him over the line to win Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) before being spelled for the spring with the 2011 Caulfield Cup on the agenda.

Backed with Luxbet from $51 to $31 before drifting again to $41, a wet track would improve his chances especially from his poor alley 16.

He is at the most successful  age to win a Caulfield Cup being a four-year-old.

In the Metropolitan he settled up close to the lead and would have to use a bit of petrol to do the same here.

He is one for one over the 2011 Caulfield Cup distance but has never raced at Caulfield itself.

He has inform jockey Kerrin McEvoy aboard who won a Caulfield Cup on All the Good in the 2008 Caulfield Cup.

Most expect Shootoof won’t play a major role in the 2011 Caulfield Cup.

It is likely he will be also ran or at best minor placegetter in the 2011 Caulfield Cup unless the heavens open.
