2013 Melbourne Cup Dream for Rialya

Adelaide stayer Rialya can fulfill a dream for owner Luke Koumi just by making his way into the 2013 Melbourne Cup (3200m) field.

Trainer Lloyd Kennewell has the Perth Cup in mind as a realistic target for the gritty five-year-old but he said Koumi has other ideas.

“He’s never had a Melbourne Cup runner, so he’d like that,” Kennewell told the Adelaide Advertiser.

Kennewell has always had confidence in the Kempinsky gelding but he got a boost that there may be bigger things in store when Rialya toughed out a narrow win in the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The Brisbane success was the first time Kennewell’s stable star had been in the winner’s stall since he showed his ability as an out-and-out stayer to win the 2012 Adelaide Cup (3200m).

Kennewell said the ultimate decision would be up to Koumi as to whether Rialya will attempt to qualify for Australia’s biggest race but admits he would prefer to focus on the more winnable Perth feature.

“It’s going to be awfully hard for him to even qualify…but if Luke wishes to try to get to the Melbourne Cup, we’ll do that,” he said.

“If we can meet halfway somewhere along the line and try to go to the spring and Perth, I’d be pretty happy.”

Kennewell toyed with the idea of keeping the winner of eight of 34 starts in Brisbane for Saturday week’s Listed Queensland Cup (3200m) but said that wouldn’t leave enough time to have a proper shot at Melbourne’s spring carnival.

Rialya was aimed at the Melbourne Cup last year but failed to get there, finishing unplaced in three starts in the Victorian capital.
