Could Open Company Derail Long John’s 2013 Cox Plate Hopes?

Long John will be looking to complete the Caulfield Guineas and 2013 Cox Plate double when he lines up at Moonee Valley Racecourse this Saturday.

The three-year-old won the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas by half a length last start and will now be attempting to take his success to the next level in the 2013 Cox Plate.

Long John has won five of his seven race starts and has earned more than $811,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
