Chase The Rainbow to be Set for 2012 Caulfield Cup

Talented four-year-old Chase The Rainbow will be aimed at the 2012 Caulfield Cup after and impressive victory at Caulfield on Saturday.

In his first race since last year’s Caulfield Guineas, the lightly-raced entire was rated a $7.50 chance at race jump in the National Jockey’s Celebration Day Plate.

But he performed more like an odds-on favourite. Held on the fence and just off the pace by Craig Williams, Chase The Rainbow took up a lead upon entering the straight and charged clear to win by three lengths from Dusty Star and Spacecraft.

The Rick Hore-Lacy-trained horse excelled as a three-year-old to win four of his first six starts including the Group 2 Bill Stutt Stakes.

Saturday’s performance holds him in good stead to fare even better in open company and Hore-Lacy had no hesitations about declaring the Caulfield Cup as the target.

“I’ll aim him for the Caulfield Cup as I think he’s good enough for a race like that,” Hore-Lacy said.

“It’s the first time I’ve ever had him right. He’d done a lot of work going into this and it’s just great he’s comeback like this.”

Punters won’t have to wait long to see the exciting grey in action again as he will line up on Saturday week to contest the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley.

Chase The Rainbow has also been nominated for the Group 1 Epsom Handicap at Randwick on October 6.
