Horse racing hero set to appear on Saturday

Posted on 04/11 by HS Jackson Jnr

Follow us on Twitter for Free Tips and Exclusive Offers. The biggest roar for the end of the Melbourne Cup Carnival could be reserved for Apache Cat, appearing in the 1200m Patinack Farm classic.

The cult horse is the winner of $4.5 million in stakes and could even upstage the Saturday highlight of the $1 million Emirates Stakes.

A galloper with 19 wins, Apache Cat got a warm reception from punters after winning the group 2 Schweppes Stakes at Moonee Valley in October.

He will face his runner-up in that race, Mic Mac, and the stage seems set for a strong battle between the two stable mates.

Trainer Greg Eurell thinks both are in fine form and could give the crowds plenty to cheer at Flemington on Saturday.

He said: “They've both come through the Valley really well and I'm very, very happy leading into Saturday.

Of Apache Cat, he added: “His last few down the straight haven't been flash, but his form leading into this is good and he's probably in better shape.”

The two could be among the bookmakers’ favourites for the 1200m race, with Mic Mac expected to wear blinkers, with Eurell adding these had worked well having been tried in track work.
