This was the favorite for his first Australian victory at the VRC-CRV Cup Tour Trophy (2000m) on Saturday. AB, who won the Melbourne Cup in 2014 with Protectionist and finished runner-up last year with Big Duke, has Caulfield Cup hope for Sixties Groove. "I really like him and I think he should win," said AB principal Luke Murrell.
While Murrell was looking for more supplements for early in the season, he already has Big Duke, defending champions 2017 Red Cardinal and Mr Garcia among the "six to eight" hope bearers.
the Melbourne Cup with Australian Bloodstock.
"We believe he is one of the best tested stallions available for this year's Melbourne Cup, so we are delighted to have him," Murrell said Monday. "We wanted to buy a pony that could take the Melbourne Cup, not just run in it, and it was a fight. The Australian Bloodstock won the Melbourne Cup 2014 with a young protectingist.
Torcedor has increased the Melbourne Cup with TAB from 26 to 17 dollars since the Australian Bloodstock acquisition was upheld. According to Murrell, Torcedor's owners Te Akau Racing received a request a week ago and saved it at the end of last weekend. "As for the capabilities of the horse we buy, it has a more prominent shape than any other we have ever purchased before," he said.
Torcedor, who was coached in Ireland by Jessica Harrington, was third in the 4000m Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in June after Stradivarius and second in the 3200m Goodwood Cup last months after this one. Australia's Bloodstock has handed the double Group 3 winners over to Germany coach Andreas Wohler, who prepares the protectionist.
Torcedor, a six-year-old by Fastnet Rock, has won six of his 19 races. "Andreas is overjoyed," Murrell said. Alan Murrell said the idea was that Torcedor would take on the Melbourne Cup at his first Australian campaign, but he could have another run in Europe. Thorcedor is a freelance galopper who has his own happiness in the foreground.
Australia Bloodstock also has cup hopefuls for Big Duke, Red Cardinal and Ormito. The HEY Doc has come back to the stage of one of his greatest victories, with a canter in the Moonee Valley to prepare for Saturday's homecoming at the 1000m Carlyon Stakes. He is undefeated at three Moonee Valley launches, underscored by his manikato victory in Group 1 last year.
