Fawkner Wins Gr1 Caulfield Cup

Monday, 21st October 2013

At Caulfield, Darley's unbeaten multiple Gr1-winning stallion Reset (Zabeel-Assertive Lass, by Zeditave) added a Gr1 success when 6YO gelding Fawkner (Reset-Dane Belltar, by Danewin) scored by 1.25-lengths for trainer Robert Hickmott in the $2.5 million Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) for 3YO+, over UK-bred but Australian-owned 7YO entire Dandino (Dansili-Generous Diana, by Generous) & 4YO mare Dear Demi (Dehere-Shirley, by Zabeel). This was Fawkner's first Gr1 victory and took his record to 9 wins (including the Gr3 Tab.com.au Stakes, Listed Headquarters Tavern Stakes & Listed Sofitel Stakes) & 6 placings (including the last-start Gr1 Turnbull Stakes, Gr1 Emirates Stakes & Gr1 William Reid Stakes) from 20 starts for $2,270,751 earnings.
