Big Run for Red Cadeaux in 2015 Australian Cup

Nine-year-old British raider Red Cadeaux is set to get his first start in Australia outside of the Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) in just over one week.

Red Cadeaux is one of 37 remaining horses nominated for the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m), which is running at Flemington on March 14. While the gelding is considered a stayer, known for his three runner-up finishes in the ‘race that stops the nation’, he will feature prominently in the 2000m race according to Robin Trevor Jones – the stable foreman to trainer Ed Dunlop.

“In a sensible race on sensible ground I think he will run some sort of race,” Trevor Jones told TVN.

“We’re going to get him to the Australian Cup as fit as we can. He has always run well first time out.

“We’re expecting a big run.”

Red Cadeaux has never won a race over 2000 metres; all seven of those came at distances ranging between 2400-2800m. However, Trevor Jones believes the nine-year-old has “got the speed” to figure in the 2015 Australian Cup, evidenced by his well-run second placing to Animal Kingdom in the Group 1 Dubai World Cup (2000m) back in 2013.

The gelding arrived to his second home at Werribee International Equine Centre on February 15, where he has been thriving in quarantine.

He had a bit of light track work over 2000 metres on Monday morning, in which he gradually quickened as he worked into a gallop. The gelding ran home his final 200m in 12.69 seconds – by no means smashing the clock – which Trevor Jones was happy with.

The stable foreman admitted there was no point putting any “bullet work” into the gelding as he simply can’t handle it.

“We know he’s got speed for a mile and a quarter (2000m), he showed that in Dubai,” he said.

“He’s a horse now that you train pretty similarly for any sort of race.”

Where Red Cadeaux goes after the 2015 Australian Cup will depend entirely on his run. The gelding’s first plan is to travel to Sydney for the first time and contest both the Group 1 BMW (2400m) and Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m).
