Mick Kent is looking to aim his talented filly Absolutely at the 2011 Cranbourne Cup and 2011 Caulfield Cup double during this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
The trainer is hoping to pick up a newly introduced $2 million bonus from TAB Sportsbet for any horse that can win both races.
“It’s a very attractive option,” Kent said.
“You have a six-day back-up, but a lot of cup horses run off a seven-day back-up.
“The good horses will be in the Caulfield Stakes (Yalumba Stakes) and those trying to qualify will be in the Winning Edge (Herbert Power).”
Kent is yet to plan Absolutely’s lead-up runs to the 2011 Cranbourne Cup.
“I will sit down and work out her program next week,” Kent said.
“Ideally, I’d like to go into the Caulfield Cup with four runs.
“I would look at the JRA Trophy (Moonee Valley) on Grand Final eve.
“She’s a bit under the radar.
“Apart from her first start (second in a Cranbourne maiden), she’s run in stakes class every start and the only time she missed a place I thought she was poorly ridden.”
This year’s Caulfield Cup will take place Saturday October 15, 2011.Make sure you open an account with Luxbet in time for this year’s Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.
