Strawberry Wins Again on Way to 2012 Caulfield Cup

Talented Gai Waterhouse-trained gelding Strawberry Boy scored his second consecutive victory at Warwick Farm before being declared as a 2012 Caulfield Cup contender by the high profile Sydney trainer.

Strawberry Boy

Strawberry Boy has added another win on their way to the Caulfield Cup 2012

With stable jockey Nash Rawiller in the saddle, the lightly-raced four-year-old was allowed an easy lead in front and was never troubled in the Paul Noble Mile (1600m) as he held the position for the entire trip.

The previously unbeaten Jacquinot Bay produced an eye-catching run from last at the turn to take second place but never troubled Strawberry Boy who crossed the line 1 1/2 lengths in front.

Waterhouse was not shy yesterday when telling media that the horse “would just win” and she was proven correct in what was the first race of the day at Warwick Farm.

She was just as confident about the horse’s spring prospects following today’s victory and said his next start would be in the Group 3 2012 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield on September 22.

“He’s more than a nice horse, he’s so exciting, he’s got so much upside,” Waterhouse said.

“He’ll go straight to Melbourne now.

“I think he is a real Caulfield Cup horse, a real Caulfield Cup horse.”

After winning two of three starts as a three-year-old when debuting in the autumn, Strawberry Boy resumed last month to win the by 2 1/2 lengths first-up at Warwick Farm.

A son of Redoute’s Choice, the four-year-old is owned by John Singleton and is also nominated for the Group 1 Metropolitan, Epsom Handicap and the Melbourne Cup.

The day is just getting started at all tracks across the country and there is plenty of value to be had nation wide.
