Maluckyday Up From 75th To 50th In Melb Cup Order

Tuesday, 19th October 2010

Similarly 4YO gelding Maluckyday (Zabeel-Natalie Wood, by Yachtie) passed the Melbourne Cup's 1st ballot clause by winning Saturday's Listed City Tattersalls Club Cup (2400m) at Randwick. The win lifted him from 75th to 50th in the order-of-entry. Racing Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter declined to issue a weight penalty to Maluckyday, noting: "While winning the Tatts Cup by a big margin, Maluckyday carried the minimum weight & the quality of field he beat could not justify providing a penalty to him in the Melbourne Cup."
