Monday, 17th October 2011

On the Australian track, former Widden Stud stallion Southern Image (Halo's Image-Pleasant Dixie, by Dixieland Band) added a Gr1 triumph when 4YO mare Southern Speed (Southern Image-Golden Eagle, by Zabeel) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the $2.5 million Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield in Melbourne. Southern Speed (ridden by Craig Williams for trainers Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas) defeated 5YO entire Green Moon (Montjeu-Green Noon, by Green Tune) & 5YO gelding Tullamore (Savabeel-Trocair, by Flying Spur). Southern Speed now has 4 wins (also including February’s Gr3 The Vanity over 1400m at Flemington) & 3 placings (including September’s Gr1 Underwood Stakes over 1800m at Caulfield, plus both March’s Gr1 Schweppes Oaks over 2008m at Morphettville & Gr3 Schweppervescence Stakes over 1800m at Morphettville) from 12 starts for $1,906,850 earnings.
