2011 Rubiton Stakes Won by Catapulted – CF Orr Stakes Day Caulfield Race 7 Results

Catapulted

Race favourite Catapulted wins the 2011 Rubiton Stakes

The Mark Kavanagh-trained Catapulted has won the eighth race on the CF Orr Stakes Day card at Caulfield this afternoon, the Catbird gelding coming home the winner ahead of a quality field in the $125,000 Group 3 Rubiton Stakes (1100m).

Starting the $3.80 favourite at Luxbet, Catapulted ran a big strong race and added to the great record of the favourites at Caulfield today.

Catapulted travelled well throughout the race, jockey Michael Rodd settling him just off the speed behind early leaders Solar Charged and Avenue.

After missing the jump by a half length, John O’Shea’s filly Solar Charged moved up to settle second behind the Peter Moody-trained mare Avenue before snaring the lead.

On the turn the two females shared the lead, former Blue Diamond Stakes winner Reward For Effort poised right behind them.

Along the straight Catapulted found the room they needed after being caught up at the top, pulling out a commanding burst to hit the lead with 100m to go and find the line hard.

In the end it was Catapulted a half length ahead of Avenue with Solar Charged hanging on for third.

Time Matters, the roughie of the field paying up to $101 in the markets, was an eye-catching fourth.

After looking a chance, Reward For Effort weakened on the run home to finish well back.

It was a smart winning time for Catapulted, Kavanagh considering a start in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield on February 26 but still to confirm with the handicap conditions of the feature maybe not the best fit for the horse.

Catapulted, a Group 1 placegetter and a stakes winner in three states last preparation, has now won 10 of their 19 career starts.

Punters have one last chance to get in on the CF Orr Stakes Day racing action at Caulfield this afternoon with the final event on the card, the $125,000 Group 3 Hyderabad Race Club Stakes (1200m), due to jump at 5:50pm (AEDST).
