Viewed Wins Gr1 Caulfield Cup

Monday, 19th October 2009

Ill-fated former Durham Lodge stallion Scenic (Sadler's Wells-Idyllic, by Foolish Pleasure) added a Gr1 triumph when top-weighted 6YO entire Viewed (Scenic-Lovers Knot, by Khozaam) motored home along the rails to score a 2.25-lengths victory in the $2.5 million Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield in Melbourne. Viewed (ridden by Brad Rawiller for trainer Bart Cummings) defeated 4YO entire & stable-mate Roman Emperor (Montjeu-Gussy Godiva, by Last Tycoon) & 5YO gelding Vigor (O'Reilly-Rationable, by Housebuster). Viewed took his record to 9 wins (also including 2008's Gr1 Melbourne Cup over 3200m at Flemington, Gr2 Brisbane Cup over 2400m at Eagle Farm & Listed Japan Racing Association Plate over 2000m at Randwick) & 6 placings (including April's Gr1 The BMW over 2400m at Rosehill & March's Gr1 Ranvet Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill, plus 2006's Listed Dulcify Quality over 1800m at Randwick) from 32 starts for $5,816,030 earnings.
