Cup Penalty For Precedence

Tuesday, 29th October 2013

Saturday's impressive Gr2 Drake International Cup winner Precedence (Zabeel-Kowtow, by Shadeed) has received a 1kg penalty for the Melbourne Cup, reports abc.net.au. The penalty moves the 8YO son of Zabeel to 29th in the order of entry for the Cup. Precedence has been nominated for the Gr1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) & Gr3 Lexus Stakes (2500m) at Flemington on Saturday, with the winner of both races awarded automatic entry into the Cup. Should Precedence make the field, he will become master trainer Bart Cummings' 88th Melbourne Cup runner and should he prove victorious, his 13th winner of the great race.
