Alcopop Facing The Breeze After Caulfield Stakes Draw
Despite being second to 10-time Gr1 winner So You Think (High Chaparral-Triassic, by Tights) in the 2010 installment of the Gr1 Caulfield Stakes (2000m), and facing only an 8 horse field in this year's running on Saturday, multiple stakes-winning 7YO gelding Alcopop (Jeune-Iota Of Luck, by Blevic) will need more than a little of his dam's name if he is to figure prominently after drawing "the extreme outside barrier", reports news.com.au. The race will feature a classy field including last start Gr1 Underwood Stakes winner Ocean Park (Thorn Park-Sayyida, by Zabeel) and looms as a key lead-up to the Gr1 Cox Plate in just over a fortnight.
