December Draw has drawn perfectly in the barriers for the 2011 Caulfield Cup that will take place at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday October 15, 2011.
The five-year-old gelding has drawn barrier 11 for the $2.5 million race, but will jump from gate 9 should the emergencies not gain a start.
Trainer Mark Kavanagh expressed his relief after the draw was conducted yesterday.
“I’m pretty happy with that,” Kavanagh said.
“He’s not the biggest bloke around, but you just see using his speed to getting into a good position from there.”
Jockey Michael Rodd made it clear he would try to get across early and settle forward in the 2011 Caulfield Cup.
“He gets out of the barriers really well so I don’t want to restrict him at what he’s good at,” Rodd said.
“The tempo of the race will dictate where we go.
“(But) he’s obviously going to land in the first half of the field.
“I’ll be looking to switch him off on Saturday and give him every chance to run the distance.”
