Glencadam Gold Receives Penalty for 2012 Melbourne and Caulfield Cup

Glencadam Gold’s dominant win in the Metropolitan on Saturday has seen him receive a 2kg weight penalty and soar up the order of entry for both the 2012 Melbourne Cup and the 2012 Caulfield Cup.

Glencadam Gold received a 2kg weight penalty for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups after winning the Metropolitan

The Gai Waterhouse-trained import is unbeaten from four Australian starts and led from start to finish on Saturday in what was his first start at Group 1 level.

His weight now stands at 53.5kg for both major cups and sees him move to 21st in the order of entry for the Caulfield Cup and 27th for the Melbourne Cup.

Racing Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter said the penalty was in line with what the Metropolitan winner has received over the past few years.

“2kg is the same penalty that I have given to the last three Metropolitan winners in Speed Gifted, Herculian Prince and The Verminator,” Carpenter said.

“Tawqeet was the last horse to win the Metropolitan-Caulfield Cup double in 2006. Tawqeet, like Glencadam Gold was a northern hemisphere four-year-old and was also moved to 53.5kg following his win in the Metropolitan.”

Waterhouse was her typical boisterous self following Saturday’s victory and confirmed the imported stayer was on track to the spring’s two major staying races.

“Look out Caulfield, Melbourne Cups!” Waterhouse said.

Tommy Berry was riding Glencadam Gold for the second time on Saturday and was not shy in declaring him a genuine cups contender.

“He’s a Caulfield Cup horse, he is now,” Berry said.

“He’s a top class horse.”

Epsom Handicap winner Fat Al received a 1.5kg for the Melbourne Cup (now 52.5kg) but is yet to pass the clause of winning a race beyond 2000 metres.

The Lloyd Williams-owned Tanby received a 0.5kg penalty for his win in the Bart Cummings, taking his weight to 52.5kg for both the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.
