Melbourne Cup Rematch for Dunaden & Red Cadeaux in Hong Kong Vase 2011

Having fought it out in the tightest Melbourne Cup finish in the famous Flemington feature’s 151-year history, this year’s Melbourne Cup winner Dunaden and narrow second-placegetter Red Cadeaux have a rematch scheduled in next month’s iconic 2011 Hong Kong Vase.

Dunaden and Red Cadeaux will face off again in the 2011 Hong Kong Vase this December

One of four elite level races making up the prestigious Hong Kong International Raceday at Sha Tin Racecourse on December 11, the $HK 14 million Group 1 Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Vase (2400m) is shaping up as a scintillating rematch between Mikel Delzangles’ French-trained raider Dunaden and the Ed Dunlop-trained British galloper Red Cadeaux.

After an agonising five minute wait to determine the 2011 Melbourne Cup result on Tuesday November 1, five-year-old Cadeaux Generux gelding Red Cadeaux was found have been defeated by the narrowest of margins, and Dunlop is hoping they can turn the tables on their conqueror in the Vase.

“He’s going to Hong Kong next for the Vase. That’s exciting,” Dunlop confirmed.

“He’s could out of the race (the Melbourne Cup) really well.

“We’re proud of him, but it was a frustrating one.

“It was a great experience and we’ll be going again for the Melbourne Cup if we have the right horse, maybe Red Cadeaux, and hopefully we can go one better.”

Last year’s Melbourne Cup winner Americain, who finished a brave fourth when defending their title this year, could also be a starter in the Hong Kong Vase 2011.

Plans on whether to continue onto Hong Kong with Americain will be decided after the champ runs in the $350,000 Group 2 Zipping Classic (2400m) at Sandown Racecourse this Saturday.

Alain De Royer Dupre’s Dynaformer stallion Americain contested last year’s Hong Kong Vase finishing three lengths away third to Mastery one race after their sensational Melbourne Cup triumph.

Duanden was not originally on the Hong Kong Vase path with the stayer scheduled to travel home to France from Melbourne on Thursday evening.

Having come through the Melbourne Cup in fine form, however, connections have decided to race in the Vase on the way back to France.

It is good news for Aussie hoop Craig Williams who missed the historic ride on Dunaden in the Cup due to suspension, but who may get the chance to atone for that in the Hong Kong Vase.
