Fox Hunt Is “Perfect Type Horse” For Melbourne Cup 2011

While Mark Johnston’s Jukebox Jury is currently one of the best backed runners in the 2011 Melbourne Cup field, it is stable mate Fox Hunt that appears to have the upper hand going into Tuesday’s race.

#8 Fox Hunt – Horse Facts

Fox Hunt has only had 15 race starts, however, all but one of them has been over 2,000 metres in distance.

The gelding won his last start in the Deutsches St Leger on September 18, 2011, over 2,800 metres.

Johnston feels Fox Hunt’s running style will give him every chance in the $6 million Melbourne Cup.

“He’ll be well suited to the Melbourne Cup,” Johnston said.

“He tends to have a flat spot in the middle of the race and a great burst of speed (at the end).

“I think Fox Hunt is the perfect type horse for the Melbourne Cup.”
