Red Cadeaux in Good Order Ahead of 2015 Sydney Cup

Nine-year-old world traveler Red Cadeaux had his first Australian start outside of the Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) on Saturday, running a commendable fifth in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m).

David Hayes & Tom Dabernig earned the quinella in the $1 million feature race with Spillway and Extra Zero finishing just one millimetre apart, followed by Happy Trails, The Cleaner, and Red Cadeaux.

Red Cadeaux has come out of the race in good order and is ready to travel to Sydney for the first time later this week.

“They’ve done the course in just a little over two minutes,” Robin Trevor-Jones, the travelling foreman for Red Cadeaux’s trainer Ed Dunlop, said.

“It’s pretty quick going, quicker than in the spring carnival on the same type of ground, so we’ve got to be pleased with that sort of run.

“He looks to have pulled up well.

“He’s wandering around at Werribee eating grass and seems very happy.”

Hugh Bowman rode Red Cadeaux for the first time in the 2015 Australian Cup and agreed with Trevor-Jones.

“He just found the genuinely run 2000 metres just a bit nippy for him and it took the little speed he has out of him,” the jockey said.

“But what I liked was when the pressure started to come, he wanted to fight so he’s in a good frame of mind.”

Red Cadeaux is nominated for the Group 1 BMW (2400m), running at Rosehill on March 28, and the Group 1 Sydney Cup (3200m), running at Randwick on April 11, his first starts outside of Melbourne and not at the Flemington track.

Trevor-Jones is confident the gelding will go straight to his ideal two mile distance in the 2015 Sydney Cup but no official decision has been made between Dunlop and owner Ronald Arculi.

“He’s still in both races and we’ll just see what he tells us,” Trevor-Jones said.

“I would be betting on the side that he will go straight into the Sydney Cup, but I don’t really know at this stage.”

Red Cadeaux will have one last trot at Werribee on Monday morning before heading to Sydney on Wednesday where he will join other international horses stabled at Canterbury Racecourse.
