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.

The Street Cry gelding will be running in open competition for the first time in the 2013 Cox Plate, which will likely prove his biggest test.

Trained by Peter Snowden, Long John has drawn barrier 11 for the $3 million race and will be ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy.
