2010 Caulfield Cup Results & Winner

October 16th, 2010

Caulfield CupThe 2010 Caulfield Cup was an incredible run that saw an exceptional performance from Gai Waterhouse’s Descarado. No one could have expected it from a horse that finished fourteen from sixteen in the Turnbull Stakes, but the four year old gelding did it, in a hell of a run.

Early in the run, Herculian Prince and Triple Honour fought for the lead, but it was all for naught as the pack made it round the final turn. Descarado moved forward from where he had sat between fourth and second, eventually getting to the front and extending his lead.

Harris Tweed managed a second place, greatly improving on his tenth place finish in last year’s Caulfield Cup results. His season has hinted at preparation for an incredible Melbourne Cup run, and a place finish in the big race is looking very likely after this Caulfield Cup performance.

Monaco Consul finished photo third, a much better place in the Caulfield Cup results than one would have expected from his awful season up to now. Again, this could easily hint at a great Melbourne Cup run, though we will need to see his Cox Plate run next week first.
