Today the highly anticipated 2010 Caulfield Cup ran as Race 8 at the Caulfield Racecourse, with one of Australia’s most loved trainers Gai Waterhouse claiming her first Caulfield Cup victory with Descarado.
High Chaparral four-year-old Descarado ($17) went out at great odds and was up at the front early with stablemate Herculian Prince before jockey Chris Munce let the eventual Caulfield Cup winner settle back off the pace.
Making their move on the home straight, Descarado fought hard to maintain the lead after New Zealand galloper Harris Tweed came up on the outside and threatened.
Ears back, Descarado knuckled down and got to the line first, beating Harris Tweed ($17) by a length with Monaco Consul ($21) a further two and a bit lengths away in third.
With three roughies running the 2010 Caulfield Cup Trifecta, Ladbrokes.com.au punters that had money on the three enjoyed a big payout.
Odds-on favourite Shocking ($4.80) was not disgraced, running a solid Melbourne Cup trial finishing fourth after being caught out wide and back.
