Ocean Park Wins 2012 Caulfield Stakes On Way To Cox Plate

October 15th, 2012

The Group 1 Caulfield Stakes has been won by Ocean Park at Caulfield Racecourse last Saturday October 13, 2012.

Ocean Park won the race by almost a length ahead of Alcopop, who surprised everyone to place second, and Sincero, who passed the post in third.

The Thorn Park entire has now won six of his 10 race starts and has earned more than $700,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

Ocean Park has now won all three of his race starts this spring and is on track for a run in the 2012 Cox Plate on October 27, 2012.

The four-year-old was paying odds of $1.50 to win the 2012 Caulfield Stakes at bookmaker.com.au.

Trainer Gary Hennessy revealed that he was more than pleased with Ocean Park’s run in the 2012 Caulfield Stakes.

“He’s shown that turn of foot and that’s what you need for a Cox Plate horse,” Hennessy said.

“The most significant thing Glen said to me yesterday was ‘you could put a horse in front of him and he’ll chase it and he’ll pass it at the same speed’.

“We just wanted to use this race as a lead-in; he’s only had two (track) gallops in the last three weeks.”

He is expected to be ridden by Glen Boss in the 2012 Cox Plate in two weeks’ time.
