Caulfield Thoroughbred Club Cup Day

May 2nd, 2015 0 comments

Fine and warm but I can sense a chill in the air already. I saw a few horses starting to get their winter coat. May is my worst month of the year as we slide into winter. Only four more meetings before I pull the plug, and no mid-weekers, now that Sandown has been abandoned. It looks like a tricky day with restricted fields and the rail out a huge 14 metres and a decided advantage on the outside rail. And so it proved.

Only one bet for the day on a standout, the two-year-old Strindberg, who weakened badly and ran last. I spent the rest of the day sulking. The winner Black Vanquish is a good-looking horse and could be something.
