Rarefied Continues Road Back in 2013 BTC Cup

It’s been a long way back to the races for talented sprinter Rarefied but the six-year-old gets his chance in a big Group 1 in the 2013 BTC Cup (1200m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

In December 2011 the Darley-owned galloper suffered a tendon injury that threatened to end his career.

But rather than give up on the gelding, trainer Peter Snowden has nursed him back to full health and he has seemingly picked up where he left off.

In his first-up run in nearly 16 months Rarefied finished fourth in the Sebring Stakes before flying home on April 27 to win the Hall Mark Stakes.

There’s no doubting the son of Commands faces a tough ask against some of the nation’s sprinting big guns this weekend but jockey Michael isn’t giving up hope.

“I know Rain Affair and Buffering are going to be hard to beat, but hopefully I can possie up behind them,” Rodd told Racing Victoria

“My bloke’s pretty honest. He’s got a good turn of foot, so we’ll just use the whole of the Eagle Farm straight and see if we can get them.”

Despite being six years old, the injury problems have seen Rarefied race just 18 times. From that he has notched up four wins and placed on another 10 occasions.

The short-distance specialist has had just two attempts at Group 1 level, finishing seventh in the Blue Diamond as a two-year-old and second in the 2011 Winterbottom Stakes in Perth.

Rarefied will jump from barrier six and is currently a $17 chance in the BTC Cup.
