Fiorente Will Not Run at 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival

A potential northern trip to the 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival has been scrapped for star import Fiorente in favour of a spell in the paddock ahead of a spring tilt at the 2013 Melbourne Cup.

There was talk of a start in the 2013 Doomben Cup for the 2012 Melbourne Cup runner-up but it has now been confirmed he will spell.

“Fiorente” has today gone for a spell in preparation for a full on spring assault at the Cup,” Part-owners Henderson Racing tweeted.

The five-year-old impressed plenty at just his second Australian start on Saturday when running third in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) behind All Too Hard and Rain Affair.

The son of Monsun showed his versatility as it was his first race below 2000m and he beat a number of classy horses pass the post.

It was just the second time the exciting galloper has been seen on Australian soil. On debut in the Melbourne Cup he made light work of the 3200m to run home strongly behind Green Moon.

On the basis of his performances in Australia so far have rated Fiorente an $11 chance to go one better in the prestigious staying race this year.

Only Puissance De Lune ($9) is ahead of Fiorente in the pre-post Melbourne Cup market.

The Darren Weir-trained grey import stormed into 2013 Cup contention with some big performances in the late spring and backed that up to win the Blamey Stakes at his only autumn start.

Joining Fiorente at $11 is Lloyd Williams-owned import Sea Moon who is narrowly ahead of It’s A Dundeel ($13), Mount Athos ($16), Jet Away ($17) and Michaelangelo.
