2013 Melbourne Cup via America for Dandino?

Australian-owned stayer Dandino could follow in the footsteps of stable Jakkalberry and make a trip to the USA on his way to the 2013 Melbourne Cup (3200m).

Owned by Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock, the six-year-old powered home to run second in the Group 2 Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot on Saturday and now has connections weighing up a start in the American St Leger Stakes at Arlington in August.

Melbourne Cup third placegetter Jakkalberry won the American St Leger before contesting the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and trainer Marco Botti indicated his recent stable addition could attempt the same feat.

“We’ll meet with the owners this week to discuss his options which include the American St Leger, the owners won it last year with Jakkalberry,” Botti told AAP.

“His main aim remains Melbourne. Possibly the Caulfield Cup but definitely the Melbourne Cup.”

Purchased by ATB with the goal of adding some extra starch to their Melbourne Cup team, Dandino was a Group 3 winner in last year’s September Stakes in the UK under former trainer James Fanshawe and also finished second in the Group 1 Canadian International Stakes.

Rated a $21 chance in the Melbourne Cup market, Saturday’s performance gave Botti confidence the son of Dansili can make an impact this spring.

“He ran a very good race and we were very pleased with him,” he said.

In the Melbourne Cup he will be joined by Jakkalberry who finished third in the $6.2 million staying contest at big odds last year.

The seven-year-old suffered a leg injury during a Group 2 Dubai City Of Gold win in March but is reportedly making strong progress in his recovery.
