Bianmick & Kelinni Receive 2012 Caulfield Cup Weight Penalites

Two more gallopers have received a weight penalty for the upcoming Caulfield Cup 2012 this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with Racing Victoria’s chief handicapper Greg Carpenter penalising both Bianmick and Kelinni for their weekend wins.


Colin Stephen Quality winner Kelinni has been penalised 1kg for the Caulfield Cup 2012

Michael Brady’s six-year-old gelding Bianmick won their first stakes race at Moonee Valley on Friday night taking out the Group 3 JRA Cup (2040m) as a $20 roughie.

It was an impressive effort from the son of Bianconi who beat home Dance With Her by and easy one and three quarter lengths in the feature which saw them pass the first ballot clause for both the $2.65 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 20 and the $6.2 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

Bianmick was penalised 1kg for the win and will now carry 51kg if they make the 2012 Caulfield Cup field, the horse now 49th on the order of entry for the mile and a half classic moving up from 69th.

“Bianmick is a six-year-old racing in career best form having won four of his last five starts,” Carpenter said when issuing the penalty.

“He was making his debut at black type level on Friday night and impressed in defeating quality opposition in Dance With Her and Ironstein (3rd).”

Bianmick became the fifth horse in the past eight years to receive a JRA Cup winning penalty, the impost keeping with recent times with other JRA Cup penalties including Maldivian (1kg in 2007), Alcopop (1kg in 2009) and Precedence – eighth in that year’s Melbourne Cup receiving 1.5kg for their 2010 victory.

The only JRA Cup winner in the past 16 years however to go on and contest the same year’s Caulfield Cup was El Segundo, penalised 1.5kg for his 2005 JRA Cup victory, who went on to win that year’s Yalumba Stakes at Caulfield before finishing two lengths away sixth to Railings in the Caulfield Cup.

Kelinni is also 49th (up from 69th) on the Caulfield Cup ballot after their 1kg penalty for a tight win over Julienas in Saturday’s Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality (2400m) at Rosehill took them up to 51kg.

“Kelinni is a progressive stayer who was able to travel wide throughout and prove too strong for (the Gai Waterhouse-trained duo) Julienas and Strawberry Boy in the home straight in the Colin Stephen on Saturday,” Carpenter said.

“It was a win worthy of a penalty in the Cups and I have accordingly penalised him 1kg.”

Chris Waller’s Refuse To Bend four-year-old is just shorter in the Caulfield Cup odds at paying $81 while Bianmick is at $101.

In markets for the famous Melbourne Cup Bianmick is at the same triple figure price, the same $101 quote as Kelinni.
