Secret Admirer to Break Drought in 2012 Caulfield Cup?

Secret Admirer has not won since the 2011 Epsom Handicap and there would no bigger stage than to break her drought than in Saturday’s Group 1 2012 Caulfield Cup (2400m).

Secret Admirer

Secret Admirer faces plenty of challenges as she looks to break her drought in the Caulfield Cup

Trainer Grahame Begg has said that the five-year-old mare has been crying out for a longer trip all spring and she will certainly get that this weekend.

Her last start was a fifth place effort in the Epsom (1600m) and this weekend she will attempt to become the second straight Australian mare to win the Caulfield Cup after Southern Speed did so last year.

So can this dual Group 1 winner who has been costly to many punters finally break her drought? Keep reading for the important stats as well as reasons for and against Secret Admirer winning the Caulfield Cup.
