Zydeco Likely To Miss Caulfield Cup
VRC Oaks runner-up Zydeco (Zabeel-All Time High, by Flying Spur) is unlikely to contest the Caulfield Cup, reports NZ Racing Desk. The richly talented but problem-plagued filly is one of the pre-post fancies for the race but trainer Michael Freedman believes time is against her. "She's had a few issues and we're a bit behind time with her," he explained. "I would think getting her to a Caulfield Cup is now unlikely as she will need a bit longer out, but I'll play it by ear." Zydeco has won 2 of her 6 starts, including the Gr2 Wakeful Stakes, and was placed in the Gr1 Thousand Guineas behind Commanding Jewel.
