Descarado Out Of Gr1 Cox Plate

Friday, 21st October 2011

Trainer Gai Waterhouse yesterday informed Racing Victoria stewards that Descarado “would be unable to take his place in the Gr1 Cox Plate (2040m) on Saturday, after failing to overcome an leg injury that is set to end his 2011 Spring Racing Carnival”. The last-start Gr1 Caulfield Stakes winner's withdrawal “paves the way for the Mark Webb-trained 1st emergency Avienus (who finished 2nd to Descarado in that race on 8 October) to gain a start”. Avienus finished 6th behind So You Think in last year's Cox Plate.
