Show Day Prize
Aug 14, 2013
Caballo Rapido earned himself a rest after his decisive victory at Eagle Farm on the big Ekka Day program 14/8/2013.
The 4yo Husson gelding was ridden with precision by Michael Cahill who has been very impressed with his improvement. At his first attempt over 1830m he settled back in the field but travelled like the winner the whole way.
You can tell he is improving all the time as he has been a little timid when asked to go through gaps in the past but he charged through today and put them away without Michael needing to pull the stick.
His first 2 wins were on heavy tracks but he is not really a wet tracker David said. He will now have 4 weeks off and come back for a tilt at the 1800m Magic Millions Cup in mid January. David added that he is still 6 months away from when he expects him to be mentally and physically complete so has high hopes that his owners have more good times ahead.
He is expected to run a strong 2200m plus next preparation and his victories coming from behind in his last 3 of 4 starts indicate there is a good chance that will be the case.
