Pinker Pinker

2011 Cox Plate Winner Pinker Pinker

As expected in Cox Plate Day Race 5 superstar mare Black Caviar claimed her 15th consecutive career victory, winning back-to-back editions of the $300,000 Group 2 Schweppes Stakes (1200m).

It was an as predicted effortless win from the unbeaten queen, Black Caviar now onto the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day before heading to Perth for a shot at the $500,000 Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot on November 19.

Another odds-on favourite that saluted for the Luxbet punters was Manawanui in the fourth, the Golden Rose winner taking out the $200,000 Mitchelton Wines Vase (2040m) and confirming their favouritism for next Saturday’s 2011 Victoria Derby at Flemington.

The marquee race of the meet was of course Race 8 – the $3 million Group 1 Tatts Cox Plate (2040m) – which was won in an upset by Greg Eurell’s classy mare Pinker Pinker.

The Cox Plate success capped off a sensational seven days for jockey Craig Williams who won last weekend’s Caulfield Cup with Southern Speed as well as the Geelong Cup mid-week with Melbourne Cup-bound French raider Dunaden.

Pinker Pinker had too much late speed for in-form Kiwi Jimmy Choux, who finished second, while the Jim Conlan-trained Rekindled Interest finished off the winning Cox Plate Trifecta for 2011.

Race 1 – Microflite Helecopters Inglis Banner (1000m)

  • 1st: #11 Diamond Earth
  • 2nd: #14 Lamingtons
  • 3rd: #8 Swipeline
  • 4th: #4 Rise To The Top
  • Winning Time: 1:0.42
  • Winning Margin: 0.2L

Race Review: Race track experience, the addition of blinkers and a trip the Valley earlier this week proved the winning combination for the Anthony Cummings-trained Diamond Earth who was too fast in the end for runner-up Lamington in the first. Race favourite Swipeline just missed the kick and did terrifically to get up for third. Was an obvious first four result and a nice start to the day for Luxbet punters.

Race 2 – Essendon Jeep Stakes (1600m)

  • 1st: #7 Torah
  • 2nd: #1 Bliss Street
  • 3rd: #4 Classic Elle
  • 4th: #4 Flame Of Lanka
  • Winning Time: 1:37.08
  • Winning Margin: 1.3L

Race Review: Given a sweet run just off the pace by jockey Luke Nolen, the Peter Moody-trained filly Torah was able to post her first career win from seven starts. The track, tempo and race pattern all went in the winner’s favour today and she held on to win by a length and a quarter of a fast finishing Bliss Street who may be a danger over more distance.

Race 3 – 1300 Australia Stakes (1200m)

  • 1st: #8 Karuta Queen
  • 2nd: #2 Miss Stellabelle
  • 3rd: #1 Amah Rock
  • 4th: #5 Most Husbands
  • Winning Time: 1:10.60
  • Winning Margin: 2.8L

Race Review: With no Black Caviar in her way today there was simply no stopping Canberra filly Karuta Queen. She was the classiest in the field and showed that with her blistering three length success. Right from the start the Luxbet favourite looked the winner, Karuta Queen jumping away beautifully before blitzing her rivals. The rest just couldn’t match it with the flying Sydney filly, Karuta Queen winning in a slick time of 1:10.60 and it’s now onto Flemington.

Race 4 – Mitchelton Wines Vase (2040m)

  • 1st: #1 Manawanui
  • 2nd: #2 Collar
  • 3rd: #3 Scelto
  • 4th: #4 I Feel Good
  • Winning Time: 2:7.14
  • Winning Margin: 2.5L

Race Review: It’s onto the Victoria Derby in seven days’ time for Ron Leemon’s impressive Vase winner Manawanui. Settled back off the pace, today Golden Rose winner and Caulfield Guineas runner-up Manawanui was given a quiet ride by Glyn Schofield and showed their potential to develop into a genuine Group 1 stayer. Collar’s run for second was brave, but they were no match for the winner who pulled away with ease and looked to be wanting even more distance – a great sign going into the Derby making them a great Vic Derby bet at Luxbet.

Race 5 – Schweppes Stakes (1400m)

  • 1st: #5 Black Caviar
  • 2nd: #3 Doubtful Jack
  • 3rd: #2 Here De Angels
  • 4th: #1 Scenic Blast
  • Winning Time: 1:10.13
  • Winning Margin: 6.0L

Race Review: She is the queen. There is no denying her talent and there is no stopping her winning streak, Black Caviar posting an incredible six length win over an inferior field for her 15th on the trot. Coming from one and a half behind stablemate Doubtful Jack to five plus in front, it was effortless, easy work for the superstar here. The Schweppes Stakes played out just like it looked like it would on paper and it is now onto the Patinack and then Perth for Black Caviar.

Race 6 – Drake International Cup (2500m)

  • 1st: # 1 Americain
  • 2nd: #4 Tullamore
  • 3rd: #6 Illo
  • 4th: #10 Anudjawun
  • Winning Time: 2:36.41
  • Winning Margin: 2.3L

Race Review: In the perfect 2011 Melbourne Cup lead-up, defending winner Americain showed they were back to their best blowing away their rivals in the Moonee Valley Gold Cup. After having a little bit of trouble on the tight Moonee Valley turn, once in the clear there was no stopping this champion French galloper, Americain confirming their favouritisim to go back-to-back in the world’s richest. Tullamore was gallant in another placing following their third in the Caulfield Cup, but they need about 10 horses above them in the order of entry for the big one to gain a start. Brilliant first Australian run by Bart Cummings’ German import Illo for third here – will also tighten in Melbourne Cup markets at Luxbet.

Race 7 – Drummond Gold Crystal Mile (1600m)

  • 1st: #9 Testa My Patience
  • 2nd: #5 Hawks Bay
  • 3rd: #12 He’s Remarkable
  • 4th: #11 Happy Trails
  • Winning Time: 1:36.74
  • Winning Margin: 1.5L

Race Review: Continuing the winning run for the punters on Cox Plate Day, race favourite Testa My Patience travelled beautifully over the mile, pulling away over the final stages after coming from three wide on the turn to win in an excellent trial for the Group 1 Emirates Stakes at Flemington in two weeks time.

Race 8 – Tatts Cox Plate (2040m)

  • 1st: #11 Pinker Pinker
  • 2nd: #5 Jimmy Choux
  • 3rd: #9 Rekindled Interest
  • 4th: #3 Wall Street
  • Winning Time: 2:5.39
  • Winning Margin: 1.3L

Race 9 – Trojan Hand Tools Stakes (1600m)

  • 1st: #7 Ocean Challenger
  • 2nd: #6 Hi Belle
  • 3rd: #1 Lady Lynette
