Red Cadeaux’s Autumn Trip Down Under Decided This Week

A decision on whether triple Melbourne Cup winner Red Cadeaux will make the trip down under for his maiden autumn carnival appearance will be made by connections before the end of the week.

The Ed Dunlop-trained Cadeaux Genereux gelding is prepared in Great Britain but the veteran is well-travelled including four Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaigns in Australia.

Newmarket-based Dunlop and owner Ron Arculli are set to discuss immediate racing plans for the champion stayer when the latter returns from Jamaica.

“It will be Mr Arculli’s shout, and Ed is due to speak to him on Thursday,” Dunlop’s racing manager Chris Humpleby told the Racing Post this week.

The options are Australia or the United Arab Emirates for a late summer-early autumn preparation.

The nine-year-old warhorse made history this last spring at Flemington Racecourse when running second in the ‘race that stops a nation’ for a third time when runner-up to German raider Protectionist in the $6.2 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) on November 4.

He followed that up with a trip to Hong Kong when sixth in the Group 1 Hong Kong Vase (2400m), a race he finished fourth in the previous year and won in 2012.

While no stranger to racing in Oz, Red Cadeaux is yet to travel over for an autumn bid.

That could change in 2015 however after he featured as one of 69 nominations for the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m), to run at Flemington on March 14, as did the reigning Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist who is now prepared in Sydney by Kris Lees.

“We’ve made the (Australian Cup) entry now as supplementary entries are expensive,” Humpleby said.

“He also has the three nominations at Meydan, and we don’t know yet if he has been accepted, although you would think he would probably get in all three.

“Again, it will be down to Mr Arculli, but I think the Gold Cup might be where they are leaning this time if he goes to Dubai.

“He is being prepared again for his travels, wherever they might take him. He looks fantastic and everyone is happy with him.”

Should Red Cadeaux, who went back into work last week, make the trip in the coming weeks it is expected the $7.27 million earner will also stay on for The Championships during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

His most likely Sydney options are the $1.5 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 28 and the $1.6 million Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) with nominations for the latter closing on February 9.

Futures Sydney Cup betting is open now at with Signoff and Who Shot Thebarman equal $7 favourites.

Last year’s Melbourne Cup quinella then follow with Protectionist and Red Cadeaux both paying $9.
