Filling the minor placings were Dandino in second and Dear Demi third.

Fawkner’s victory was the culmination of a twelve month plan from the Lloyd Williams-owned Macedon Lodge team who set the Reset gelding for the 2013 Caulfield Cup after he finished a narrow second behind Happy Trails in the 2013 Group 1 Emirates Stakes (1600m).

The five-year-old had performed strongly in the lead-up to the Caulfield Cup, finishing an impressive third in the Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m), but there were a number of questions marks over whether he would handle the step-up to 2400 metres for the first time.

Co-owner Nick Williams said that his father deserved all the credit for the victory and said that his team were always confident that the versatile gelding would run out the testing trip.

“We were worried that he was handicapped out of the big miles in the country because he had a great spring last year and Dad said I’m glad the bloke didn’t pay – we are going to win the Caulfield Cup with this horse,” Williams said after the race.

“We are pretty big on setting horses for their Grand Final and this was this horses Grand Final and he has done a great job.

“I think this is the hardest race to win in Australia; it is a lot harder to get a horse to the Melbourne Cup but just by nature of the way this race is run there are always a lot of hard luck stories.

“It is a very hard race to win and we have had a lot of runners in it over the years and it is great that we managed to win it.”
