Australian Cup Target For Tom Melbourne

Thursday, 15th December 2016

Meanwhile, talented middle-distance galloper Tom Melbourne (Dylan Thomas-Roshanak, by Spinning World) will be aimed at the Gr1 Australian Cup in the autumn, reports racing.com. The Lee and Anthony Freedman-trained import showed he was not far off elite company with consecutive Gr3 placings in the MRC Coongy Handicap (2000m), VRC Lexus Stakes (2500m), and VRC Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) in the spring. "Tom Melbourne will be aimed towards the Australia Cup - we learned a lot last spring, painfully," co-owner Terry Henderson of OTI Racing said. "He'll head to the Australia Cup, and possibly toward Sydney." The Gr1 Australian Cup (2000m) will be run at Flemington on 11 March.
