Kiwi Cauthen In Caulfield Guineas 2013 Spotlight

Connections of young New Zealand galloper Cauthen are talking about a trip to Victoria for the 2013 Caulfield Guineas this spring after the juvenile’s blistering debut at Te Rapa on Wednesday.

Prepared by Andrew Campbell in Opaki, exciting Darci Brahma colt Cauthen annihilated their rivals in a 1200m two-year-olds’ sprint at the midweek meet winning by an impressive eight and a half lengths.

The ease in which they won their first official start was a magic result for Campbell and the horse’s connections who are already looking ahead to a big Group 1 assignment down under.

“He’s always been a good horse and we have always thought a lot of him,” Campbell said of the horse he selected at the 2012 NZ Bloodstock Yearling Sales for $85,000.

“It seems like we have been waiting a long time for him but he has shown us heaps.”

Also impressed was winning jockey Buddy Lammas who had Cauthen sitting three wide throughout before their super acceleration home.

“He just cruised. He was a lovely horse when I rode him at the trials,” Lammas said.

“That’s what I drove five hours for, and I will travel further if need be to ride him.”

Immediately after the success Campbell indicated Cauthen could be sent to Australia during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival to target the $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 12.

That’s the direction the trainer would love to go anyway as opposed to heading to Hong Kong in December, for which they are now qualified for – a path a number of former high profile New Zealanders have previously travelled.

“We have talked about an Aussie campaign,” Campbell said.

“He’ll likely have a couple of weeks in the paddock and I hope to run him in the Vain Stakes and the Henry Bucks en-route to the Caulfield Guineas.”

The $135,000 Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) runs at Caulfield Racecourse on August 17 before the $120,000 Listed Henry Bucks Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on September 7.

Campbell also said he would be going over to look after the horse for their Aussie preparations after having trouble with Group 1 winner Tavistock.

“I’ll take him over myself,” he said.

“We sent Tavistock to Mick Price and he got really sick, but this time I’ll do him myself.

“We’re looking at taking a team over with him.”
