Red Cadeaux Confirmed 2015 Australian Cup Starter

Trainer Ed Dunlop has confirmed another trip to Melbourne for British stayer Red Cadeaux, however this marks the first tilt outside of the Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) for the nine-year-old.

Red Cadeaux will race in Australia outside of the Melbourne Cup for the first time after an autumn campaign was confirmed.

The perpetual Melbourne Cup bridesmaid will race in the autumn carnival for the first time after Dunlop confirmed to Racing Victoria’s International Recruitment Officer Leigh Jordon that the gelding would target the $1 million Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March 14, putting him in line for a re-match against Protectionist.

In a series of firsts for the gelding, Red Cadeaux is also set to run in Sydney for the first time following the 2015 Australian Cup. He will travel to Sydney for The Championships – in particular the Group 1 BMW (2400m) at Rosehill on March 28 and the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick on April 11.

“The horse entered quarantine at Newmarket in England on Friday and will arrive in Melbourne on 14 February where he’ll complete a mandatory quarantine period at the Werribee International Horse Centre,” Jordon said via Racing Victoria.

“Although he has exclusively contested the two-mile Emirates Melbourne Cup in his four previous visits to Melbourne, Red Cadeaux has been placed in a Dubai World Cup over 2000m so we expect him to be ultra competitive in the Australian Cup.

“Red Cadeaux has become such a popular horse in Australia via his heroic Melbourne Cup performances and we’re thrilled that Victorian racing fans will have the opportunity to see him campaign in Melbourne for a fifth time.”

Red Cadeaux entered quarantine at Newmarket in England last Friday and is set to arrive in Melbourne on February 14 – the official start of the autumn carnival with the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) running at Caulfield – where he’ll begin quarantine at Werribee.

The gelding finished runner-up in the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup a record three times in 2011, 2013, and 2014 as well as placing eighth in 2012.

Punters will undoubtedly be keen to see the fan favourite race again in Australia and perhaps score his deserved first win.
