Globetrotting Cadeaux Touches down Safely in Singapore
5/13/13 - It is not clear whether or not horse transportation earns the owners air miles, but if so, the connections of the globetrotting Red Cadeaux could well be in for plenty of free trips in the years to come.
Trained at Newmarket by Ed Dunlop, the seven-year-old is yet another of his handlerís charges who seems to thrive on plenty of racing and masses of international travel, the likes of Ouija Board and Snow Fairy before him demonstrating just how able Dunlop is at plundering prizes across the world and keeping his horses fit and well at the same time.
Red Cadeaux has arrived safely in Singapore ahead of his bid on May 19 for the Group 1 Singapore Airlines International Cup at Kranji.
The gelded son of Cadeaux Genereux was in action recently at Kyoto in Japan where he ran another fine race in finishing third to Fenomeno in the hugely valuable Tenno Sho over two miles, having previously run a blinding race to finish second to the perennial favourite in the odds on horse racing, Animal Kingdom, in the Dubai World Cup at Meydan on March 30.
In December, the winner of more than £3.2 million in total career prize money landed his most valuable success to date when beating the high-class Jaguar Mall by a short head in the Group 1 Longines Hong Kong Vase at Sha Tin, a run that proved a boon to fans betting on racing, and netted connections a cool £710,000.
As well as finishing runner-up to St Nicholas Abbey in the Coronation Cup at Epsom last summer, Red Cadeaux is best known for missing out narrowly on a massive success in the Ďrace that stops a nationí, beaten just a nose by Dunaden in a memorable renewal of the 2011 Melbourne Cup.
