2014 Carlyon Cup Results – Chase The Rainbow Returns To The Winners Stall

Chase The Rainbow recorded his first race win in over 18 months with a narrow victory over Star Rolling in the Group 3 Carlyon Cup (1600m) at Caulfield this weekend.

Chase The Rainbow looked as though he was going to turn into a Group 1 contender after his impressive three-year-old campaign, but suffered a nasty string of injuries following his dominant win in the National Jockeys Celebration Day Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on September 1 in 2012 that kept him away from racing.

Trainer Rick Hore-Lacy has patiently nursed Chase The Rainbow back to full fitness and he was delighted to see the Dash For Cash entire return to the winners stall with a tough victory; with the veteran trainer now looking ahead to Group 1 events later in the 2014 Autumn Racing Carnival with the talented entire.

“What a gutsy horse; the other horse had him beaten all the way up the straight, but he still won,” Hore-Lacy said after the race.

“He is in the Australian Cup and the Doncaster and he is a high class horse.

“It is amazing racing; it can just turn around at the blink of an eye.”

Jockey Craig Williams gave Chase The Rainbow a sensational ride, positioning Chase The Rainbow just behind the leader Bit Of Hell in the early stages of the Carlyon Cup, but was quick to pay credit to the work that Rick Hore-Lacy has done to get the injury-plagued galloper back to the track.

“He is a lovely horse and we don’t see too many grey horses that are great horses,” Williams said.

“He looked a really exciting horse as a three-year-old and then he had his issues, so Rick has done a great job to get him back.

“He feels really good and solid and I was really pleased with the way that he toughed it out against a good horse.”

Chase The Rainbow and Star Rolling were locked in a thrilling battle in the final stages of the race; with Williams and Damien Oliver on Star Rolling electing to ride their horses hands and heels as they searched for the line.

“Damien made a comment after the race saying what a good finish it was.

“I was delighted with the result; we all know how good Damien is going at the moment.

“I was just very fortunate that I had my horse take the lead at the top of the straight and I really loved the way that he didn’t want to give up the win.”

Imported galloper Pakal was well-backed in the lead-up to the Carlyon Cup, but failed to let down strongly when asked for an extra effort by jockey Glen Boss and finished third behind the leading duo.
