Caulfield Cup 2012 Possibility for Quintessential

Queensland Oaks winner Quintessential could be targeted towards the prestigious 2012 Caulfield Cup at Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival.


Quintessential could be targeted towards the Caulfield Cup

Currently in pre-training in New South Wales, the New Zealand filly is set to have an Australian Spring Campaign and the world’s richest 2400-metre race remains a possibility.

“There’s the Caulfield Cup in Melbourne but it might come around a bit too quickly,” Sargent said.

The daughter of Fast ‘N’ Famous produced an excellent display at the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, dominating the Group 1 Queensland Oaks and producing solid efforts in three other starts.

After arriving in Australia on the back of a third-place effort in the Group 1 New Zealand Oaks, the talented youngster finished fourth twice at Group 3 level and also finished runner-up to Brambles in the Group 1 Queensland Derby.

Opening a Sydney stable next month, trainer Sargent said the Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) on August 25 could be the first race of the preparation for Quintessential.

“She’ll run in Sydney and I had it in mind for her to resume in the Warwick Stakes,” Sargent said.

“But it might be too soon for her.”

The horse who beat Quintessential in the Queensland Derby, Brambles, has also been earmarked as a possible Caulfield Cup contender.

Brambles was one of the stars of the winter, winning the last three starts of his campaign.

The Peter Moody-trained son of Savabeel scored victory twice at Group 3 level in the Rough Habit Plate and Grand Prix Stakes before dominating the Queensland Derby from start to finish.

Brambles ran in exciting fashion in all of his wins, showing excellent strength to hang on and win despite being pushed hard early by jockey Brad Rawiller.
