Fiorente Withdrawn From Caulfield Cup
Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse has withdrawn high profile stayer Fiorente from the Gr1 Caulfield Cup, reports news.com.au. Following his barnstorming victory in the Gr2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes 11 days ago, Fiorente firmed strongly in Gr1 Cox Plate betting, and Waterhouse now seems likely to use the weight-for-age championship decider as Fiorente's final lead-up to the Melbourne Cup. To win both races Fiorente would need to emulate the feats of Saintly and Makybe Diva who, likewise, skipped the Caulfield Cup.
